Morton Grove Library workers under 17 won’t show movies any more

“The Morton Grove Library now requires its employees to be at least 17-years-old in order to screen movies. Library Director Pam Leffler announced the policy change on Sept. 19, when library trustees met for their monthly meeting. She also told trustees that the 16-year-old projectionist who was the center of controversy this summer is no longer working at the library, but declined to elaborate further for privacy reasons. Afterward, Leffler said trustees want the library to abide by Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) guidelines, even though they’re not law.” (via Morton Grove Champion)

    I really don’t think it was the 16 year old projectionist who “was the center of controversy.” I think it was one Trustee in particular who had a personal agenda and did what she could to circumvent the Open Meetings Act.
