Well, the price is right, especially if you have a high loss rate in that subject area.

Also, libraries should strive to make multiple points of view available to the public, even from controversial sources.

I think I would add it to my collection for those reasons.

Subject: [Libs-Or] The Message of the Qur'an-vetting, please

The Seaside Public Library recently received an unsolicited copy of The Message of the Qur'an "translated and explained by Muhammad Asad."

This donation was sent from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Depending upon the source, CAIR has been described as either a hate group or a bonafide educational institution.

Our Holy Koran gets "disappeared" on a regular basis.

Is The Message of the Qur'an an item we want to put on our shelf?

Have any Oregon libraries added this to their collection?

Thanks in advance,

Dan Cawley
