Darleene Barrientos The Children's Room at the Glendale Central Library Saturday was orderly and quiet at first glance, but then a strange sound broke the silence. "Quack, quack," chorused a group of children. In the storytelling room, Glendale Police Lt. Gary Montecuollo was reading aloud from "Farmer Duck," by Martin Waddell and Helen Oxenbury, as part of the "Just Ducky" event at the library.
