Dear Mr. Neinast:

In response to your letter of December 11, I am sorry that you felt Mr. Black's
response was inadequate.

I have investigated the issues you raise and find that I agree with Mr. Black.
He has the authority to make such decisions and, in this case, I also believe
he has made the correct one.

I hope that you can accept this decision and enjoy the library's resources
in the future.

                                                           Very truly yours,

                                                           David C. Swaddling
