English Only

According to this Denver Post article there’s some interesting new library law being proposed for the state of Colorado.

“According to a draft of a concurrent resolution Schultheis is sponsoring, he also wants to bar public libraries from ‘purchasing any printed or electronic documents, publications or other materials in a language other than English.'”

One CO librarian has responded: “I think Herr Schultheis is denying his heritage.”

    My grandmother Kaufman only knew English cause her parents had the shocking idea that if they came to the United States, they should learn English. Having said that, I don’t think it’s out of line for a library to have stuff in other languages.
