  Billy's Answer

Your alternatives for reading are constrained when books are forbidden, which is something I disagree with. So, no, I don't think books should be banned from public libraries. Banning books from school libraries is a different matter; moreover, I don't have any children, so I don't want to weigh in on that topic.

  1. I'm also very much against banning books from any libraries, whether public or at schools. I think some books should maybe have some safeguards around them, but that is only of they're actively, purposefully hateful, which is a veerryyy limited number of books!
    Thanks for hosting, I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

  2. Oh I think I deeply over-analyzed this question! Largely I believe that libraries shouldn't ban books, but I guess I was saying if somehow, someway a book that was just downright hateful and racist was published, then by all means, ban THAT book.

    Here's my BBH

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Interesting question! I of course have seen all the uproar around book banning but honestly didn't give it much thought as my kiddo is too young right now. Thanks for hosting and the question! Have a great weekend!

  4. Public libraries, no. Just because a book offends my sensibilities and beliefs doesn't mean the library should try to police the morality of the community at large. I can just choose not to read it.

    School libraries, I favor age-appropriate access to books. I can see that there could be a book so offensive that it just doesn't need to be available to school-aged children. A ban shouldn't be based on one parent's demand for it, and if a parent feels strongly that their child should be able to read that book, they can go to the public library.

    Happy weekend!

  5. For me, this is not a simply answer. :)
