POPULAR OPINION SUGGESTS THAT LIBRARIANS ARE A SEDENTARY BUNCH WITH LITTLE PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS BEYOND LIFTING A FEW BOOKS AND OCCASIONALLY MOVING A CHAIR, THE STEREOTYPE GOES WAY BEYOND THAT IN THE MEDIA TO IMPLYING THAT LIBRARIANS ARE "BI-FOCAL WEARING BUNHEADS, COLLECTORS OF CARDIGAN SWEATERS, MIDDLE-AGED WOMEN IN POLYESTER SUITS, NATURALIZER SHOES, AND BAGGY STOCKINGS--WE'RE SMART, NERDY, NO NONSENSEY, AND OF COURSE BOOKISH" (BELBEN, 2004, p, 38), Well, that is not true for many librarians, except for the smart and, hopefully, the bookish parts. Ask Cathy Belben, who as a teacher-librarian (recently turned writer), rode her bike 20 miles to school, ran in local races, and played basketball against the students (2004). Cathy Belben has been a real, live "Nancy Pearl" action figure.
