Johnson County Library Restores Bill of Rights

Last night, the Johnson County Library Board reversed itself and restored the American Library Association's Bill of Rights. The board was widely criticized after it voted 4-3 last month to revoke the collections policy. Many in Johnson County saw the vote as a move by right-wingers to censor library material.

Following the appointment of two new members -- Pamela Crandall and Charley Vogt -- the board voted 4-2 to reinstate the policy. Board member, James Berger left the meeting early after indicating he would have voted with the minority.
