Having worked in a library reshelving and straightening books, I assure you that reorganizing one small section of parenting books'll take about 2 mins, tops, and not even be that annoying.
I should note, that for most libraries, it's best if you put the offending book behind all the others and then line the other books up in dewey decimal order at least as neatly as the books in the surrounding area. Sideways books are atypical at a library so just pulling the Sears books in front of the other books will be corrected immediately. Also, don't try this trick if your library is very good about getting in new copies of missing books.
