City Council revises policy on video ban

8 March 1994


The Springfield City Council rescinded a ban on children's access to R-rated videos from library collections. Instead, the council made it the parent's responsibility to alert librarians if their children under 16 years of age should be prevented from borrowing R-rated videos. Authorities continued to debate whether this change was constitutional, as the city government would still be responsible for monitoring children's access to materials.
