Submitter: I’m submitting a book that landed on my desk as an unwanted mailing this afternoon, and was just as quickly tossed in the trash. We are a small private school, and obviously biased materials like this are books we try to avoid. It’s interesting that Worldcat lists 10 libraries as owning this book; none of them are school libraries. Many thanks for the hours of amusement that you’ve provided!
Holly: You’re welcome! Since this was submitted, three more libraries have holdings added to WorldCat. They appear to be mostly public libraries, which is definitely a more appropriate place for it. There are families that might opt for this style of sex education. I’m not saying it’s an out-and-out awful library book. This kind of thing needs to be looked at carefully before it is added to any collection, though. Remember that unwanted mailing of the dental book? If you don’t look carefully at these books that show up unsolicited, you could end up with something that doesn’t fit your community’s needs.
