From the Mouths of Librarians...

Today is a short post, but no less important than any other.  This quotation comes from Barbara Wolfe, the new head librarian at the Camarillo Public Library, in an article in the Ventura County Star.  Wolfe used to work at the Moorpark Library in Ontario, working 5 hrs a week to read with children.  Here are her words of wisdom for the day:

"Libraries are a core foundation of a free society.  People are often offended by some of the things they find, but we're not about censorship."  In fact, she was offended when O.J. Simpson's book became available at the library. "But there's something here to offend everyone. And that's the way it should be," she says.
