Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. — Alfred Whitney Griswald
Banned Books Mugshots: Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska), Janie Crawford (Their Eyes Were Watching God), Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye), Harry Potter (Harry Potter), and Hester Prynne (The Scarlet Letter).

Yesterday, we realized that a regular patron put up a poster in the lobby wishing the library staff a Merry Christmas. She even drew little portraits of each of us at the top and labeled them with our names. However, there were three names and faces we didn’t recognize. We have no idea who they are.
Patron: “Do you know when the Twilight movies will be back in?”
Me: “It looks like they are due back in four days, but sometimes people return them early or late. Would you like me to put you in line for them?”
Patron: “No, I guess not. I’m going to jail in four days and I was hoping to watch those movies before then.”
