I have met all of these characters and more! If people do not want to be talked about, written about and thrown out of the library then don't act out in a very public place! No one has the right to expect other patrons (OR librarians) to put up with bizarre, threatening or disruptive behaviors. A library is an educational institution much like a school and does provide information for all ages and does in fact provide programming for children from birth on ward. Would you put up with these bizarre behaviors in your schools?? Of course not! Oh, and the library administration could easily have transfered this assistant to another branch or to a less public job in the library.
Do you really think ludington has branch libraries?

First off she is not a Librarian! Hell, she cannot even pronounce "Library" correctly.
Check out this video that Ms.Sally Sterns-Hamilton spoke to a sort of local TV station.
The stuff she says is downright scary!

Someone forgot to mention that the librarian supposedly used library computers and mailing supplies to send out info to people about the book, breaking the rules on using the email or computer for personal use. Doubt she got much money at all, it's a PUBLISH AMERICA BOOK! Google Publish America and scam and see what pops up.
