Can you imagine a world without Public Libraries? Public Libraries are at the heart of democracy. They ensure equitable access to information and knowledge with a commitment to intellectual freedom.
But, some Americans want to curtail library's services. Public Libraries are in the line of political fire these days -- Some states are moving towards banning books and even questioning if libraries should be defunded altogether.
Under the first amendment to the US constitution, Congress may not ban books, but maybe states and individuals can. What about local government, libraries, and local school boards?
