It’s hats off to the new president and CEO of the Brooklyn Public Library. Linda Johnson, the head bookworm, has been charged with transforming the library to serve a digital-age population — ’cause these kids today, they don’t know from books.

Linda has been the interim executive director since 2010 and helped the library expand services through new staffing schedules. Thanks to Linda, most branches offer six-day service and are open an average of 43 hours per week. “Brooklyn Public Library is one of the largest and finest systems in the world,” Mayor Bloomberg said last month (and for once, Standing O agrees with him). “Linda Johnson’s appointment is great news for its future.”
