Sorensen, Mark W.
Illinois Libraries, v78 n3 p120-23 Sum 1996
Analyzes a 1993 censorship case involving public protest against the Fairfax County (Virginia) Library System's display of a gay newspaper. The case gave rise to the Family Friendly Libraries movement. The responsible librarian should select to maintain a balanced collection, know the community, educate the library board and develop consensus on it, and keep communication lines open. (PEN)
