Arrangement of Desks Draws Controversy

Yes, library folks, people will complain about anything.

The West Hempstead Public Library received complaints that the study desks are arranged in a way that resembles a swastika.

The library's interior designer counters that the shape is not a swastika because the layout runs counterclockwise, the opposite direction of the Nazi emblem. Siting that this layout resembles a Native American symbol that means good luck, the library offers that the pinwheel design also makes efficient use of space.
