Banned books -

The subject of banning books in school libraries seems to be up. I remember the "discussion" from the days when my children were in school. We also had many meetings on what books could be sold to raise money for the school. Some people did not want Garfield comic books sold, feeling they demeaned the reading process. Others thought just getting their kids to read was the point and besides we could make money on them, which would lead to computers and on and on.

I remember when I excitedly went to the local Mill Valley Library to check out Hardy Boys books for my son. I had loved Nancy Drew and thought I might revisit her too. The books were not there. I was informed they were not "literature." Since that time, they have appeared.

Anyway, here is an interesting site if you enjoy the subject of what is controversial now, according to some.
