While my rural school doesn't have the resources for a Henry Moore (or even Moore-esque) sculpture, there are still philosophical takeaways for librarians. As I watched, I realized that I want my school libary to be infused with a Breakfast Club ethos -- to be a space where people connect and come to respect each other in new and unexpected ways. And I suppose I have other, less positive connections to the flick as well. John Bender destroys Moliere, but my husband tossed random books out the window of his junior high school library. But I married him anyway, and I still find the connection between Claire and John Bender absolutely electric.
