I got kicked out of my local library Monday morning, the library I've been going to barefoot for 20 years. They recently got a new Director, and he had the library board institute new rules of conduct. Now, they had done so back in 2011, and added one that simply said "appropriate attire". I kept going to the library and never had a bit of trouble. This latest one includes an appendix that gives the penalty for not wearing shoes. Looking him up, the new Director came from my old nemesis, the Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML). And his list of infractions (that includes the penalty for lack of shoes) is copied directly from CML. Sigh. I'd lost a lot of access to library services when CML kept kicking me out. My little local library was fine as a library, but they didn't have access to as many books as CML. But that had recently improved when all the local libraries, including CML, became part of a single consortium. I'd order a book from CML and pick it up at my local library. But now I cannot do even that. I tried bringing up the ADA and a religious exemption, but he was having none of it and said that he would eject me next time I came in shoeless (and maybe call the police if necessary). Friendly guy. As I was walking out he wished me a nice day. I answered, "I doubt it."
