Since being selected as John McCain’s running mate, Palin has faced questions over discussions she had with Wasilla’s librarian in 1996. In recent days, a bogus list of “banned books” has been widely circulated on the Internet.
But on its website, the city of Wasilla posted a statement asserting that no books at the library have ever been banned.
The statement notes that the library has a policy to handle requests to remove books. During a period of more than two decades four books have been challenged by library patrons, including a book in 2005 by television comedian Jon Stewart, America (The Book), according to the city.
