Library Notes: The segregated Lake City Library called the police on 9-year-old Ron McNair for trying to check out two books in 1959. Instead of arresting McNair, the police convinced the library staff to let the young boy have the books. McNair grew up to be an astronaut (sadly killed on the Challenger), and the library that called the police on him now bears his name.
