    Library Diaries iReport

     

    Library worker fired from  library job for writing a book. After working for fifteen years at a public library in the rural midwest, I wrote a fictionalized account of a woman's experiences working in a public library. My director found the book offensive, probably because it doesn't show the director in the book in such a bright light, but ostensibly I was fired because my little 150 page book might make, "some of our patrons uncomfortable" or "some patrons may not come to the library anymore because of my book."  Nevermind the fact that the particular patrons he is referring to would come to the library even if it were burning down to access their porn, terrorist groups, pedophile, or alien sightings sites.

     

    Whats going on when a director of a library not only fires a good employee for writing a book, but also seems to care more about the perverts and pedophiles than the employee or children who are in danger because of the resident pedophiles and sex offenders.

     

    Also--Whats going on in this world? I have not been able to find one lawyer to make a First Amendment (Freedom of Speech, Press) case or even a whistleblower case.

     

    Is this Russia, China or America???

     

    Meanwhile, I am on my way to bankruptcy and the pedophiles roam free!
