      I currently work for a public library and this is one of the heaviest titles reserved currently. I don't believe the library has the right to decide what it's public reads. They should be the supplier and let the people make a conscience decision on what it is they are going to read. The "Freedom of choice" still exists in America and the public library should not take this right away.

      This is ONLY a book about sex, that is intended for ADULTS. How can a library call itself a library if it pulls books it has already bought and allowed to circulate?

      In this day and age, let people READ WHAT THEY WANT TO READ. Be glad people still READ BOOKS!

      The freedom to read was established after the Inquisition that tried to reverse the Reformation. The freedom to read is one of the pillars of democracy; let's keep it that way.
