KC Library Statement on Book Banning

In recent weeks, local and national groups have worked to remove dozens of books from library shelves, keeping them out of reach of the nation’s youngest readers. The Library condemns any proposed censorship of reading materials and insists that reading for information, enlightenment, and interest is a fundamental right of all Americans.
