Deborah Jacobs, incoming president of the Oregon Library Association and Corvallis-Benton County Public Library director, will speak in opposition to Measure 9 at a local press conference. The O.L.A. is opposed to the statewide petition that is being sponsored by the Oregon Citizens Alliance. If the statewide initiative becomes law, librarians fear that books about homosexuality would be challenged and removed from library shelves.
