Lebanon Daily News – “There is a soft spot in our hearts for librarians. They play such an important role in our democracy — providing us with access to information and ideas. Librarians are also on the front line when it comes to promoting and protecting our freedom to read. No person fought longer and harder to preserve this precious right than Judith Krug, the longtime director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom and the founder of Banned Books Week, who died of stomach cancer on April 11 at age 69.”
