What's Next? The Verizon Community Library?

Oh, yuck. The Rogers Public Library in Rogers, Arkasas just dedicated their new Wal-Mart Children's Library, named of course for the retail giant headquartered in Bentonville, AR. According to the article, Wal-Mart will also be helping out with the renovation of the entire library. Hm, I wonder what kind of collection policy Wal-Mart will be enforcing on RPL? "If you want new furniture, librarians, you have to promise not to buy that evil rap music..." Complete corporate sponsorship of public libraries is wrong on so many counts.
