Librarians would shelve Patriot Act

My SA has a piece about the popular “Radical Militant Librarian” button that ALA has been selling in response to the FBI calling librarians that in e-mail correspondence.

“I saw it and I couldn’t resist,” Krug said of the librarian-slam-turned-money-making button. “The head of our store said it was the fastest-selling button he’s ever seen. They were flying off the shelves.”

Proceeds from the buttons, which cost between $1.25 and $2, depending on the number purchased, go to the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom.”

“Krug acknowledged the buttons fly in the face of conventional stereotypes of librarians.”
