STORYVILLE(Columbia TriStar, 1992)"Storyville" is a complicated political thriller that demands complete attention but doesn't make that a challenging task for the viewer.James Spader is really too young-looking to be completely convincing as Cray Fowler, a third-generation New Orleans politician running for the U.S. Congress. But Jason Robards is perfect as his salty and politically savvy uncle. Robards plays the brother of Fowler's father, who was killed years earlier in a hunting accident (which may have been suicide)

An infant propped up on a pillow babbles happily in a garden where fabric flowers sprout taller than 2 feet. A few steps away, a 4-year-old boy waits for customers at the imaginary grocery store, gleefully poking the numbers on the cash register. And a 2-year-old plays peekaboo through a hollow, fallen log. All appear to be having fun. Early-childhood experts say they are learning. Every detail in the "Storyville" wing at the Rosedale Library, which opened yesterday, is designed to help children up to age 6 prepare for school.

Alaina Grubb, 31, wanted to do something stimulating and fun with her young niece and nephew the other day, so she took them to the county library in Woodlawn. Seriously. The library. Specifically, the Arbutus woman took Hayden Grubb, 5, and her 4-year-old brother Lincoln to Storyville, an elaborate, interactive, "magical town" designed for young children from newborns to 5-year-olds. "It's great, a wonderful resource, and they love it," said Grubb, standing in the town's play kitchen watching Hayden arrange plastic pizza slices in a tray and Lincoln stack colorful dishes in a sink.

"Growing up, I would play librarian,” says Mary Hastler.  “I would line my stuffed animals up, and they would check out books.” So maybe it's no surprise that during Hastler's first career in health-care administration, she began volunteering with Bel Air Friends of the Library, helping organize fundraisers. Soon enough, she was working nine hours a week at the library, which snowballed into a new career. In 2010, she became director of the Harford County Public Library. Hastler's mission is to reinvent the library continually to maintain its relevance to the public.

Mary Hastler knew she was about to create a fuss, knew that, unfair as she might find it, people were going to label her the last thing a librarian wants to be called — censor. You don't refuse to carry the most talked-about series of books in the country without anyone noticing. But as she read E.L. James' erotic novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey," on her iPad, Hastler couldn't reconcile its words with the Harford County Public Library's policy not to buy pornography. Hastler, the county's library director, says she has no problem with your run-of-the-mill bodice-ripper.

When Cindy Ulrich's grandson bursts through the front door of her Bowleys Quarters home, he asks the same question: Is it library day? Ulrich says 3-year-old Dalton Scheckells looks forward to their visits to the Rosedale branch of the Baltimore County Library, where he can shop, cook, build and garden in Storyville, a child-scale village that he never wants to leave. "This is just a fantastic place, where there is no 'can't touch' and everything is their size," Ulrich said.
