Library Book Circles - keep the Really Bad Books out of circulation - Page 21

post #401 of 403
oh my god! I am a children's librarian who is an AP parent and believe me, if I took everything off the shelves that didn't reflect "my" values, it would be a much smaller library! How about all those murder mystery and slasher books that I abhor....oh, yeah, they're on the best-seller list every day. Oh, and those crummy Ann Colter books (she can't write a decent sentence, much less a paragraph)....and then there is the queen of the crap novel with pronoun problems and sentence fragments everywhere Danielle Steel. She sets such a bad example for grammer...how on earth could we "let" people read her books! The list could go on and on. I love the concern about "vulnerable parents" but the real problem isn't with the parents who read and use the library....it's all the others who think TV and soda are great babysitters, who never join the library community or any community and treat their children like baggage. It's those folks we desperately work to attract...the readers of any books generally raise pretty good kids. Get a grip on reality and donate that energy to a local school library or woman's shelter storyhour.

Amen, sister.

LOL....oddly enough, the first thing I thought of was if the library became aware that these books were always checked out, maybe they'd figure those books were really popular and buy more copies, thus financially supporting Ezzo and Ferber. That, and interlibrary loan... You can get any book you want through IRL...
