Abstract

The Oregon Citizens Alliance (OCA) successfully sponsored the passage of the anti-gay measure which amends the Springfield charter, prohibiting city government from promoting or facilitating homosexuality. Supporters of the initiative want to rid libraries of objectionable books that encourage homosexuality. Local librarians plan to continue selecting materials according to current policies until they receive instructions from city officials.
