Library to move display
The World (Coos Bay)
Display that included literature about gays and lesbians and gay authors
Patrons and the Coos Bay Public Library board
Display location changed
The Coos Bay Public Library board decided to move a book display after patrons complained about an exhibit on Gay History Month. The board also decided to exclude fliers from community organizations in future displays. Library staff commented it was not up to the library to determine what is appropriate reading for patrons.
