The ALA is reporting about books that have been banned by particular libraries, NOT all US libraries. I am wondering how many of the libraries are public libraries vs. the libraries of private institutions.
Many books are banned in libraries for reasons most of us will never be able to understand. Fear, racism, and homophobia. However, while these books may not be available to all people via the given library system, these books are still available in the US, they are not illegal.
