Oppose SB656

As a librarian, I am concerned about any bill that gives parents to dictate what children other than their own are able to access. It is perfectly all right for you to make decisions about your own child's access to material based on what you believe is right for them; it is entirely another matter to decide that NO child is allowed to see that material. Just because the material might not be right for your child right now doesn't mean it isn't right for other children.
