This is a retelling of a story from a New York newspaper about a father's approach to getting his children to stop reading comic books. The solution to the problem was telling the children that they had earned the privilege of having their own library cards. The family now goes to the library together once a week, and all members are able to pick out their own books. Thus, the children have less time for comic books and are still able to read materials of interest to them.
