Action could be one for the books

This Associated Press story says Two copies of Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” could be taken off the Dickson County Public Library’s shelves next week.

The issue is not the book’s content. Dr. Seuss may be gone from the Dickson library, too. The issue is money.

The state could seize 20,000 books – one-fourth of Dickson’s collection – because the county budget cut library funding and violated a state agreement that paid for the books. Four other libraries also face repossession of books.
