Abstract

The Lake Oswego public library celebrates Banned Books Week by setting up a display to showcase various books that have been banned or challenged in Oregon. Carole Dickerson, library director, says the showcase will hopefully make people consider what happens to books when they are banned or censored. A Lake Oswego mother said that while she does not think books should be banned, she does think there should be monitoring for children while they read. Another mother said that she appreciated the showcase as she cannot read everything her kids read. She also stated that she is also for guidance in what children read, but is opposed to censorship.
