tossing the library bill of rights

You have probably already seen this article about a library in Illinois who had a challenge to the [admittedly weird] movie Happiness. The library ultimately decided to keep the movie in its collection but to ditch the ALA guildelines from their policy manual for being “too liberal.” I assume they were talking about the Library Bill of Rights though the ALA does have many guidelines about intellectual freedom for libraries.
