To the editor:

I am writing in response to a letter from Thomas Minder, published in your December 8, 1995, edition. Without any factual support whatsoever, Mr. Minder stated that the Chicago Public Library administration engaged in censorship and ordered the removal of copies of the November 10, 1995, edition of the Reader from library premises. This is absolutely untrue.

It is unfortunate that dangerous and false allegations like these have been made about honest, hardworking people in this way. As always, I invite your newspaper to contact my office if you wish to have a factual response to such outlandish accusations.

Mary A. Dempsey

Commissioner

The Chicago Public Library
