A Novel Idea from Merrylue Martin, a concerned patron of the Sno-Isle Libraries, in Washington. She heard some curse words in an audio book and wrote to Sno-Isle Libraries and asked that the audio book, "Alice in Jeopardy" by Ed McBain, be removed from the shelves. Meanwhile, Martin developed a plan that would let patrons know whether an item they're considering checking out contains curse words or graphic sex scenes. Ideally, she'd like the library to implement a rating system, similar to the movie industry's G through NC-17 ratings.
