click here to read about the public librarian who was fired for writing a book of FICTION loosely-based on her experiences working at her library. probably a bad idea to use her own library's photo for the cover, but still - she said it's FICTION, people. and by now we all know that fiction means "it may be based in reality, but MOSTLY I JUST LIED TO MAKE A GOOD STORY."
goddamn it, FREE SPEECH, FREE SPEECH. librarians everywhere are balling up their fists and ferociously cleaning their glasses while planning their next move. i know i am.
this also seems like a good time to add a link to a Directory of United States Public Libraries, bitches. also added in Linky Links.
