Measure 9 sends ripples of dread through halls of Oregon libraries

6 October 1992


Oregon librarians are concerned about the threat of Ballot Measure 9 to intellectual freedom and First Amendment rights. If passed, the measure would prohibit the state from establishing Civil Rights protections based on sexual preference. Supporters of Measure 9 want to protect children from pro-homosexual books, and are not targeting adult library collections. Many professional organizations have condemned the initiative, including the Oregon Library Association.
