Abstract

In this article the display for Banned Books Week at Corvallis Public Library is spotlighted. The article then mentions that recently there have been little to no problems with censorship in the town. Salmon, library director, says that they don’t keep books hidden away and that there is a respect from the population for other people’s needs and wants. The school has established processes for parents to challenge a book and attempts at censorship have receded in the past year. The article ends by summarizing a recent statement by Lake Wobegon storyteller, Garrison Keillor.
