ABSTRACT
The article presents a debate on the question of prohibition of U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from acquiring patron's records under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Carolyn B. Maloney, Democrat from New York, said that she rise in strong support of the Freedom to Read amendment. It is imperative that they do all that can be done to protect the country against terrorism, but reinstating laws that allow the FBI to conduct searches on libraries with search warrants and criminal subpoenas would not jeopardize national security. It would merely protect the constitutional right to privacy and make the Nation's libraries free once again.
