lol posted by a friend on fb..... time for me to listen to the whisperings around me?

Don't try to win over the haters. You are not the jerk whisperer


I'll go in next week and talk to the director of the library face to face and then let it go. I have better things to do with my time.... like prepare my lessons for temple prep class. :)

i don't have problems, i have issues

I'll be on standby if you want to go with plan B and make a huge scene and yell at people.

Update.... I know it's been awhile. lol

So I went to the director to discuss it face to face. She apologized that the list "appeared to be bigoted and the last thing they wanted was for anyone to feel uncomfortable at the public library" She made it very clear that it would not change and that it appearing to be bigoted was my personal issue and that I was welcome to come anyway and suggest books for the next 6 months.

I left and haven't thought much about it since. I also haven't been back to the library or taken the kids back in that time.

So yesterday my son says there is some activity at the library they were talking about at school and he wanted to go. So I went to the library webpage to see what it was and found out that not only did they go through with their book club choices but next week for their monthly movie they do they are showing "The 19th Wife". In their add for it no where does it say it's a historical fiction. They are also requesting suggestions for the next 6 months of books.

Sooooo book suggestions for a small southern town (with a shade of bigotry)???? lol It doesn't just have to be pro lds... anything that shakes up their bible belt perspectives I'm open to.

i don't have problems, i have issues

I would suggest anything from Malcolm X, perhaps a book that discusses the Baptist role in slavery, and Harold Bloom's American Religion (it is nice to JS, tough on Baptists as the 'know nothing" religion).

Why would a public library be so heavily involed in anti-LDS literature? How many books are in the library?

I think it's a fair sized library for a small town. And that is why they can be so heavily involved in anti lds activities, it's a small town. Most of the churches here have some kind of anti lds class every year.
