"School librarians at any grade level will find this book thought-provoking, especially if they are updating their library policies or training staff on privacy issues. . . . School librarians will want to have it on hand for the resources and guidelines it contains, but its real value is in the questions it prompts readers to ask about their own libraries." - School Library Journal
"This is a thoroughly researched, yet practical and accessible book. It belongs in all professional collections. . . . Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection, Starred Review
"Adams provides wonderful information about intellectual freedom and privacy in our school libraries. . . . This is a great resource and will be of particular value to school librarians or other interested parties." - ARBA
