It was dismaying to read the new director's quote in the Boston Globe:"Spurring interest in the library has been one of Adamczyk’s specialties... Adamczyk pioneered a program to acquire comic books and graphic novels for the (Somerville Library) teen section. The section, which Adamczyk described as formerly containing copies of "Tom Sawyer" and "Little Women," got much more use."" This is right out of Ray Bradbury's dystopian novel "Fahrenheit 451". The dumbing down of Amerika continues apace. But must librarians and public libraries be so enthusiastic about it?????
