Newport library board emphasizes support of open access policy

22 December 1993

Abstract

The Newport Library Board of Trustees held firm in its support of the library's open access policy after the library received a complaint from patrons Cheyne and Mary Jo Turner about two videos their 15-year old son checked out. The Turners later withdrew their complaint; the majority of the community who responded to the incident were supportive of the library's policy not to restrict certain materials to adults only.
