I stopped by the local Sea Coast hospital in Little River last week to drop off a few inspirational books at the volunteer desk for the patients.

Was I surprised to find out that patients weren’t allowed to have reading material distributed by hospital volunteers: there was no book cart available.

The response I got was, “Well, someone might bring bad reading material.”

“But books and magazines can help a person get well by giving them something to do while recovering from sickness,” I responded.

“Well, I’ll leave them here and see if the administrator can do something with your books.”

“Maybe they can be put in the chapel. After all, Devotions A-Z is a divine book.”

I don’t know if my books made it to the chapel, but something is obviously wrong when a hospital doesn’t have positive reading material for its patients.

American Family Hospital has created an in-patient library for kids 18 and under;

Hopefully, Seacoast Hospital at Little River will re-examine their policy about reading material in the rooms and allow positive literature to be available at the patient’s request.
