Censorship in public libraries

This just came in an e-mail from the ADF:
Author Ilene Vick submitted an application to reserve a public meeting room at the Putnam County Library in Tennessee to hold a group discussion about a Christian book she wrote. The library director informed her that the room was available, and then asked what her book was about. That’s when Ilene was told that library policy forbids the use of its public rooms for religious purposes – and her request was denied.
What happened to the "Library Bill of Rights" and library opposition to censorship? Apparently those "core" library principles only applied to the protection of sexual deviancy in magazines, books and on the internet.
