More from AL

Annoyed Librarian – “As you enter the brave new world of twopointopia, do they hand you the soma at the door? I’ll stick with my martinis, which, thanks to the enormous amount of money LJ is paying me now, can be made with Bombay Sapphire instead of the old Bombay Dry. They’ve even been kind enough to set up a minibar in my corner office on the thirtieth floor so I can look out on the park while I sip them. They also provided a cute bartender named Chip (Hi, Chip!) to mix them up for me. La dolce vita”

Oh, and there is some discussion on this article as well.

    I am responsible for adding gift materials to the library’s collection. Hell yes, I “censor”, if that’s what you want to call it! If it doesn’t fit the community, I don’t add it…waste of time & money!

    However, we might (do) have one book on Dianetics, one Book of Mormon, one Quran, a few right-wing fundamentalist (so-called) Christian books, just to round out our collection, but to add multiple copies in a community where they are not requested or circulated…not a happening thing. Not to mention, most people in this community who want to read such books, usually have their own copies…

    So, on occasion (not usually) I add them, but as soon as it is time to weed, and I see that these books have circulated less than twice a year, and certainly not ever in the past 8-10 months, then I weed them.

    Censorship? Maybe yes, maybe no!
