Report: “Colorado Libraries Face Increasing Requests to Remove or Limit Access to Books and Programming”
From The Denver Post:
Colorado’s public libraries face a rising number of requests to ban or restrict access to books, programs or displays, mirroring trends across the country as conservative movements target books and programming with LGBTQ and race-related themes.
So far, though, these attempts to censor library books in Colorado appear to be largely unsuccessful amid backlash by outspoken community members.
