Censorship: The Enemy of Truth

Bill Moyers on Banned Books Week from on Vimeo.

Kids and curiosity go together. Sometimes the books that challenge the minds of children the most are the books that some people feel are inappropriate for them. Children are thinkers, and they can only grow if we give them the opportunity to read all types of literature.

It's important for each parent to decide what's appropriate for their child to read. Unfortunately, removal of books and other library resources based on the objections of a few restricts access for everyone. Libraries must provide resources for the interest, information, and enlightenment of all people of the community.
