09/05/06 - A Colorado Reader Says La Quinceañera Is All About $$$

From:  Mary Leverett [e-mail her]

Re: Congressman Tom Tancredo`s Column: Treason Lobby Electing A New (Spanish Speaking) People In Denver

Here is the e-mail I sent to the Denver Public Library about its practice of serving the illegal immigrant population of the city.

The library`s non-response follows.

Re: Your decision to enlarge your Spanish-language facilities, to the detriment of all other ethnic backgrounds.

How long until you follow the Mexican government`s censorship?  People in Mexico cannot even purchase "The Last Temptation of Christ" because the corruptocracy they call a government has deemed it censor-worthy. 

How long until you kowtow to `cultural sensitivities` under the guise of the abomination of multiculturalism

Seems that`s already been done. Your decisions are disgusting.

Dear Ms. Leverett,

Thank you for your email regarding the collection of the Denver Public Library.

The 2000 Census reported more than 20 percent of the people living in Denver speak a language other than English at home. The two largest language groups in the city and county of Denver are Spanish and Vietnamese. To that end, the library purchases materials for the collection in both languages.

The Denver Public Library has a long history of serving immigrant groups with materials in languages other than English as they transition to life in Denver, Colorado and the United States.

In fact, the Decker Branch Library had materials in Dutch when it opened in 1913 to serve the immigrants living in the neighborhood.

Once again, thank you for your email.

Sincerely,

Mike Eitner [e-mail him]

Collection Services Manager
