They are not allowed to put it in a place of 'fiction'.
Could have even been kids playing around, that can happen.
Each place in the Library has areas for religious books and other places for fiction etc.
Insulting if done by accident...No.
If done by kids or even those using the Library,well yes.But! it's not the end of the World.
Librarians are well aware of their jobs, and take it seriously.They will in the end return the Bible to where it should be.They are always checking the shelves.
If the Library placed it in fiction(which I every much doubt!...Then that is a matter that would need some attention, from people who are above them.
Bibles belong to the religious section.
No, I don't think so. I certainly don't think it belongs in the non-fiction section...
It would be better not to try to define whether it is fiction or non-fiction and just refer to it as a book of worship. Which then makes me wonder - where are books like the Bhagavad Gita or The Guru Granth Sahib placed in libraries? They can be read by non-believers as works of fiction but are regarded in the same light as the Bible by Hindus or Sikhs.
It wouldn't offend me, and might make me giggle a little, but the books don't belong there. They should go in the religious section where people can find them along with the Koran, the book of Mormon, Greek myths etc. etc.
yes, if intentionally done by the staff. If it was moved there by someone who feels the Bible belongs there and is trying to make a 'point',then it may not succeed.
If as others have said, a misplacement/don't know where it belongs, then no, as I feel it's the staff's job to put things back in their proper place, even though I could reshelve it correctly.
All library stock have labels on them anyway, and as a librarian I know that 220 is the religions sections for Bibles. If it were truly fiction it would have F and the author's surname, or in this case, maybe title on the label instead, like 220 HOL for holy bible, or whatever word comes first in the description as there are many different versions.
