    I find it interesting that libraries don’t like banned books yet will censor other aspects of their own functions–programs presenting opinions and employees’ opinions.

    I don’t understand what you are saying, Anonymous. Libraries don’t like banned books? Where would someone come up with that statement? Are you saying we censor opinions? I am not aware that we censor opinions or programs but we do always monitor the ‘tenor’ of dialogue or disagreements-—we expect dialogue to be polite and respectful.
