According to the Kansas Attorney General libraries aren’t able to decide what music they want.
But didn’t the librarians object, and ask to be able to choose their albums according to their own community standards?
The Kansas Library Association, which advocates for public libraries, said it had no objection to the attorney general’s actions.
“This was very similar to what libraries do all the time,” said Rosanne Siemens, the group’s executive director. “It wasn’t so much an issue of taking things out but determining what would be best. They did libraries a big favor by selecting these CDs because there’s no way libraries could have said what they wanted.”
