Highland Park, Deerfield libraries opt for free thought over censorship

“Deerfield and Highland Park librarians consider their buildings to be bastions of free thought, and have few regulations on children reading or viewing adult content. It’s up to the parents to decide what’s appropriate for their children, said Mary Pergander, library director of the newly-renovated Deerfield Public Library.

“Deerfield is a community that has a long tradition of protecting intellectual freedom,” Pergander said.” (via Chicago Tribune)
