When I entered the library this afternoon to return a book I was surprised and disappointed by the absence of any Christmas decorations. I have lived in Port since 1970 and have always admired the decorative displays which have greeted each season, Christmas included.

If this is someone's idea of political correctness it is misguided. It manifests an underestimation of the generosity of spirit and respect of diversity by non-Christian patrons and residents of Port. There are large wreaths adorning North Hempstead Town Hall, as well as poinsettia plants and red velvet ribbons decorating banks, stores and other commercial establishments all over town. Why are these traditional decorations as well as a menorah in celebration of Hanukkah not in evidence at the library?

There is still time to restore seasonal holiday beauty to the library. I respectfully suggest that steps be taken to do so.
