Dear Gina:

As a former high school teacher, I’ve noticed that once kids reach the 6th grade or so, they start to believe that the library is boring.  Have you ever considered changing the name of the Boston Public Library to “Funkytown?”  Then parents can play the song in the house, and when the kids join in and sing, “Won’t you take me to Funkytown?” parents can say “Yes” and make them get in the car.
