- Cathy Schweinsberg, Brevard County Library services director, made the following statement explaining the May 2012 decision to remove E.L. James' novel Fifty Shades of Grey from the collection: “It’s quite simple — it doesn’t meet our selection criteria. Nobody asked us to take it off the shelves. But we bought some copies before we realized what it was. We looked at it, because it’s been called ‘mommy porn’ and ‘soft porn.’ We don’t collect porn.” Source: Brevard Libraries Pull Erotic Best-Seller 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Thus the public library preempted any possible censorship with self-censorship. If you want to read porn, then you must buy it from the private sector.
