a few interesting articles...

Check out these resources if you're interested in censorship debates or young adult literature.

They somehow feel there is a perceived innocence that they must protect, but without actually starting a dialogue with those whom they are attempting to shield. Take a look:

"Gay-Anthology Ban Engulfs Burlington County Public Library" by Beverly Goldberg
