Censorship in a Library
I was interested to read, via Public Libraries News, this short tale on modern censorship. It is striking that lots of people got angry about the "censorship" but only expressed the anger through social media comments rather than attempting to directly engage the politics of the institution. It sounds as if the commenting was just letting off steam, rather than an instrumental act to change the problem.
