publishers don't give a turkey that its tax money buying these books, they want every red cent they think they're entitled to, decency be damned.
libraries should simply cease doing business with them. if they want to play hardball so be it. if you have your heart set on a random house best seller just wait and pick it up for a dime when/if the library holds a book sale. i'm sure there are plenty of indies and small presses who would give their first born for library shelving.
the only way these companies will get it is when they're hit in the wallet and lose their massive revenues brought in from sales to libraries.
