Freedom to Read (Among Other Things)

I missed the end of Banned Books Week but meant to post this story – not just because it does a pretty good job of capturing the importance of Freedom to Read as a core principle in libraries – but also because it contains perhaps the greatest opening paragraph in a newspaper story of all-time:

“So much for the stereotype of library ladies as cardigan-wearing
schoolmarms, all pinched and prudish: Ottawa Chief Librarian Barbara
Clubb has just come out in defence of instructional guides for anal sex.”
