Abstract

Dorothy Oak, a leader of the Oregon Citizen's Alliance chapter in Bend, asked that books about homosexuality be removed from the Bend High School Library and Deschutes County Library. Lon Mabon, statewide director of the OCA commended the challenges as fostering a healthy discussion about what the public wants available at public libraries.
