My dear old friend, Penny, heads up a public library in a small upstate New York town and recently posted this link on her FB page to a blog that was new to me. This post is a fantastic letter to a patron who wanted a children's book called Uncle Bobby's Wedding "reconsidered" (read banned). The author of the blog and the letter is Jamie LaRue, the head of the Douglas County Public Library in Colorado. It is a remarkable letter in all respects and should be held up as a model for civil discourse. He respects the patron's concerns, but beautifully argues for this book's place in his library.
