Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 3 by Kiiro Yumi

*Published December 7, 2010*
I read all the volumes of Library Wars while visiting family for Christmas. I needed something to read and my library had all the copies on Overdrive, so I was able to read all of them! So much fluff and love and war! So great!
In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves–the Library Forces!
Iku is witness to a disturbance during a Board of Education speech on protecting children from the danger of books. The perpetrators are two young boys protesting the banning of their favorite books. But while Iku wants to reach out to the next generation of book lovers, Dojo insists that they can’t play favorites. Will Dojo’s prickly insistence on sticking to the rules ruin their budding friendship?
In this volume, we see more of why Kasahara wants to protect the library. There are two kids that wish to protest the restrictions adults are placing on them and what they can read, and Kasahara wishes to encourage this. Instead of setting off fireworks, they (the Library Task Force) help the kids present at the protest forum being held at the library. It goes to show you that you can help others fight for their rights in the correct manner and still be able to have a voice in the crowd.
Do you guys use your public libraries? Why or why not? Comment below and let me know!
