Perhaps the fine visitors to libraryman.com can chime in on this. For the last several years, every time I wrote the word ”librarian” I always used a capital ”L”. Same for Public Library. Of course it was not grammatically correct to do this, but I thought it indicated the esteem I hold for the professionals and the institutions. Call it silly creative writing or good point, since I have been jotting a great deal lately I have been thinking that perhaps I should not use those officially incorrect capitalizations. Any thoughts?
