Abstract

Peden writes an article that showcases the banned books display at Coos Bay Public Library. Library Director Lybecker says that there has been quite a bit of attention and that people have been surprised as to what books are on display. Mohr, former member of the library board, ended the article with a quote from German poet Heinrich Heine “Anyone who would ‘burn books would burn people’”.
