The Nashville Public Library has issued another response to efforts throughout Tennessee to limit access to certain books.
NPR reports that it's issuing 5,000 limited-edition library cards that state boldly "I read banned books."
You may remember that the school that banned Maus — Art Spiegelman's graphic novel about the Holocaust — was in Tennessee.
But the state's governor has also signed a law requiring school libraries to screen material for "age appropriateness," just days before a bill that would criminally penalize school librarians for not removing "obscene" books was proposed.
The latter bill has passed the Tennessee House, according to NPR.
