As a librarian, I am certain there is a place for this material. Open marriage, open relationships, polygamy or whatever people are calling it, is a legitimate collection need depending on your population. Far be it from me to say what is right or wrong in terms of collection or lifestyle. So, this might be something worth adding to the collection if you think it fits within your collection objectives. Done and done. However, I am a 51 year old married mother of two and I just have to crack up and make fun of books like this. Mostly because it seems like a lot of work coordinating a bunch of people. (Kind of like a reference desk schedule with people out sick or on vacation.) Personally, if there was an alternative lifestyle that I would embrace, it would be where people left me alone and I could choose my own television programs and actually hold the clicker. (This is where I yell FREEDOM!) Right now I am a slave to lifestyle that include 2 cats, an overworked, underpaid husband, an underfunded, understaffed library and 2 college-age “leeches” (as my husband lovingly calls our children). I haven’t got time to take on a “sleep schedule” or invite other people to our marriage “party”. Besides, they would just find it dull. A big night for us is re-runs of Firefly or Star Trek while vacuuming up a ton of cat hair off the furniture. Ah, but I digress from our theoretical discussion of awful library books.
I have included a few pages of text for your enjoyment/perusal. I am sure there are those out there in library land that know more about this subject and can comment on texts that one might find useful in a library collection. No, those are not my answers written in the text. It was already in my copy. I am always annoyed when people write in books and I am against workbook or quiz-style books because of it. (Yeah, I hardly think that is a new complaint among librarians!)
We have done a few of these books before, so enjoy some other marriage posts.
