Magazines aren’t really that popular in libraries either. They take up so much space. I worked for almost two years at a local library as a clerk, so I know about many of the regional libraries here. Poetry isn’t their typical fare and if a book is controversal they often don’t buy it in the first place. Or they figure the big University of Missouri system will take care of the esoteric. And many books are removed from shelves because they don’t circulate. Some of these are classics and should be kept but again space is at a premium. Or so the argument goes.
