Library should carry mature-rated games

As an adult gamer, I find myself puzzled and annoyed by the lack of mature-rated games to borrow from Gail Borden Public Library. This is a shame, as there is no real reason why the library would refuse to carry them. Especially since many modern games are considered a work of art in their own right; for example, Mass Effect, Heavy Rain and Alan Wake.

This is doubly perplexing when you consider that they library carries many R-rated movies, Parental Advisory labeled music and hundreds of adult themed books. Not to mention that simply enforcing an age limit or parental approval to check out said games would keep them out of the hands of minors, especially when you must ask a librarian to get the game for you.
