Morton Grove Library Board trustees still are keeping an eye on a 16-year-old employee who has had to show R-rated moves as part of her job, the Morton Grove Champion reports.
They raised concerns earlier this year that the girl had to screen the R-rated movies, but then saw she still was manning the R-rated screenings in July. They were upset the issue still has not been resolved. One trustee personally removed the girl from the room as she screened "Safety Not Guaranteed" on July 23. Since then, they've been stopping in to make sure she is not showing the movies on her own.
They want to ensure she doesn't have to screen the moves, or that she is supported by other library employees as she does so. For example, they said she had to struggle to make two men who were leafleting the audience leave during a movie about Islam in June, and that she had to rescreen the movie in August. During that showing of the movie, which is not R-rated, she had no issues, and other library employees were present.
Library trustees hope the issue will be resolved soon. The last R-rated movie in the matinee series at the library is “Anna Karenina." It is scheduled for August 27.
What do you think? Is it wrong of the Morton Grove Library Board to allow a minor to play R-rated movies? Let us know in the comments section.
