A group of Florida parents have come up with a unique way to censor the books that are in their children's school libraries. While I don't agree with what they are doing at all, I do have to kind of admire the method to their madness...but only if they reimburse the library for the unreturned books. Come to think of it, that could start a never-ending cycle of these particular books flowing in and out of the libraries and should make the authors very happy.
A group of parents in Miami-Dade have come up with a unique way to get books they considered controversial off the shelves at their children’s schools libraries. They check them out, but never return them.
Dalila Rodriguez admits she checked out “Discovering Cultures, Cuba” from the library at her son’s school Norma Butler Bossard Elementary at 15950 SW 144th St. earlier this month, and doesn’t plan to return it. Rodriguez said this book, like another controversial book she’s checked out “Vamos a Cuba,” contains false information about Cuba.
Rodriguez said, “If you take it out and don't return it, no kid can read it. It's not censoring; it's protecting our children from lies."
