Kurt Vonnegut Salutes Librarians’ Role in Protecting Civil Liberties

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 6, 2005

An interview with Kurt Vonnegut in the October 6 USA Today, includes the following quote: “Music…cheers him, as do people who behave decently. Librarians too – “not famous for their physical strength” – who resist having books removed from shelves and refuse to give names to people who have checked out certain books in the era of the Patriot Act. The America I loved, he writes, still exists in the front desks of public libraries.”
