- The 40 Funniest Books of All Time
This is really very much against the norms in the profession. We believe the Brevard County Public Library System is indulging in an act of censorship, and essentially is saying to library patrons: We will judge what you can read. Decisions about which books to stock tend to rest in the hands of local library officials, calculations based on what patrons are asking for and how much money a library system has to spend.
And the line is getting longer every week.
Name That Book
At the Cuyahoga County Public Library in Ohio, a system that includes Cleveland, holds were placed on the book in early April; last week there were 1, Robert J. Paul Bogaards, a spokesman for Vintage Books, declined to provide a current sales figure for the trilogy, but said millions had sold so far.
Marcee Challener, the manager of materials and circulation services for the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Libraries, said that library officials there carefully considered the book before ordering it, but ultimately decided that it was no different from one of the paranormal romances featuring vampires that have been popular for years.
But Ken Hall, the library director in Fond du Lac, said he would rather spend precious library funds on books that had literary or artistic value. Since the library publicly announced that it would not stock the book, he has been hounded by insults, with some people calling him a useless bureaucrat. But he said he had also received numerous compliments from residents urging him not to back down. Hall said. No pun intended. Tell us what you think.
