Abstract

The author reflects on democracy in America and in the public library in response to a patron's challenge to "When Heroes Die." A wide range of viewpoints should be represented in materials at the library; it is up to patrons to select materials appropriate for themselves and their families. The author responds to a list of challenged materials provided by the Oregon State Library.
