Partisan politics and libraries

We have a soon-to-be-former First Lady that was a librarian.

It's is unclear exactly what one Vice-Presidential candidate's position on libraries is, but the New York Times paints a potentially scary scenario:
"Shortly after becoming mayor, former city officials and Wasilla residents said, Ms. Palin approached the town librarian about the possibility of banning some books, though she never followed through and it was unclear which books or passages were in question."

I'd like to hear more.
