Abstract

A banned books reading at the Albany public library had no audience during the event. Even though no one showed up for the event the staff of the library do not believe that censorship is a dead issue in America. Mary Kay Dahlgreen, children’s librarian, says that complaints have surfaced from time to time from every spectrum of the population. She says that the purpose of banned books week is to raise awareness on attacks on the First Amendment that have happened in libraries all across the country. The article then has snippets from library staff saying which banned books are worth reading and why.
