"It’s there so people can choose to read it. Nobody has to read something that’s in a library. Nobody has to buy something that’s in a bookstore. But you have choice, and that’s what this is all about. And if the book isn’t there, you don’t have the opportunity to choose to read it."

Judith Krug: American Library Association (via mothermetroid)

Well spoken defense of banned books in library collections.
