    @michael I scanned and read through it. My thought has always been, “if you don’t like it, don’t read it.” I was allowed to read everything when I was a kid and I was fortunate enough that I had parents who would discuss books with me. There is plenty of stuff that has been published that I don’t care for, but it’s not my obligation, duty, etc. to prevent someone else from reading it. Just my two cents. Kelly/Ceallach

    I found it very sad to read that the ALA reported more book bans in 2021 than at any other time in the past 20 years. I too was very fortunate to have parents that never censored my reading and I have since learned that some of those books have been on banned lists, like Go Ask Alice which I read when I was about 11 or 12 years old. My guiding thought is that the library is not a moral authority, it is a means for providing open access to information. A favorite quote I read and saved is, “If you’re afraid that reading a book might change someone’s thinking, then you’re not afraid of books, you’re afraid of thinking.”
