Sratosport and Bfasorla Cotmtft Tssae, Sun., December 18,198Q THE 1? A n *< Page 3 By CATHERINE MUNSON FOSTER TV LIBRARIAN fft&S WHICH WRITER The other night I saw a TV program all about a beautiful young libraraln who was (more or less) crucified because she purchased a certain best-selling novel for her collection. She stood up bravely for freedom of the press and the right of libraries to provide controvert sial material for the public, and defied her small-town bidders. Now, what I want to know Is where are these kind of anal towns? No one ever created a public dispute over the books we buy. We have never had the opportunity to hold our heads high In the face of public opinion and defend our honor and the BUI of Rights. The only time I ever remember being berated was by a patron who was mad because I hadn't purchased SOME CAME RUNNING and LOLITA. I explained that the first cost $7.50 and the where are these kind of small reviews called It a gambol In the garbage dump with nothing whatever to recommend It, and the other was in a class by itself and mixed my emotions to the extent that Ididn't know what to do. My explanations didn't please him. He said that I probably wouldn't have bought the Old Testament If I had lived at the time it was written. I would have probably thought it in shocking bad taste. Be that as it may. Poor as the little TV play was, it did have a point. All kinds of people use the library and it is up to us to present as many sides df any picture as possibe. .If the books we have on our shelves disagree with no one's opinion, we offer little of significance to our community. It is too bad that the play concerned itself with a book of so little importance.

From the scraps of its content we were given, we wonder what review service she Subscribed to. She would never have spent the public's money on that book if she had read the sort of critical reviews we use. Another thing I found amazing was the availability of the book.
