  1. I really wanted to thank you for your article about raising awareness on harassment in the public library. I’ve been a children’s librarian for nearly three years and a month doesn’t go by when somebody makes me feel threatened or uncomfortable. I’ve had men ask me out, try to grope me, and say all kinds of inappropriate things in a branch with no security officer. It’s about time this problem is taken seriously. So again, thank you, and I hope we see some positive change during my tenure here.

    1. I’m so sorry that you’ve had the experiences so many of us have had. It can be truly frightening. I’ve been so pleased with the reaction to the article, though, it’s making me think at least some folks are ready to start this seriously. ❤️


  2. I have been dating a retired librarian for four years now. Her insight and experience corroborates everything you have mentioned in this article. I would hope that the ALA comes up with some guidelines for their members.
