Saving American Books

Remember that daft “lead in books” legislation that I blogged about a while back? Well it is still on the books, and libraries are starting to think about which books they will have to destroy in order to comply with the regulations. Thankfully the American Library Association is not giving up without a fight, and they now have an ally in Congress. Representative Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) has introduced legislation to exempt books from the legislation. Of course he needs votes in order to get is passed. And so, America, it is writing to your Congresscritter time.

Further details on the ALA web site.

Hat tip to Neil Gaiman who has been keeping on top of this one so that I didn’t have to.
