Library denies "censorship"
The Oregonian (Portland)
Your health and chiropractic by Thorp McClusky
Multnomah County Library
The book was not added to the collection.
A librarian from the Multnomah County Library, in reaction to cries of censorship for not putting a book on the shelves, writes this letter to the editor in order to dispel this accusation. The librarian states that books selected for the collection must be reputable and not simply advertisements with false claims and quotes. The librarian stated that a chiropractic book did not pass these tests, but the library would welcome an informative book on the same subject.
