This should give you a well-deserved Friday smile: librarians won’t file books about young-Earth creationism alongside books about actual science; instead, they’re classified as religion. If you’re interested, you should check out the article “Librarians decide what is reality,” which gives us this money quote:
The problem isn’t that young earth creationism might be wrong. The problem is that it isn’t scientific.
Stick it to ‘em, librarians! And while you’re at it, be sure to remove books about intelligent design from science sections too - it gives them legitimacy they don’t deserve. This isn’t an issue of censorship, it’s about having a meaningful definition of science. Intelligent design advocates fail a key test to determine if a theory is scientific, namely that they don’t put forth any testable hypotheses (they also heavily rely on undefined terms like ‘irreducible complexity’). I don’t think their books should be banned, they just don’t deserve the title and legitimacy of ‘science.’
