Condom Machines May Come To Public Libraries

It's just an idea for now, but condom machines may be placed in local public libraries.

Planned Parenthood runs a program that places condoms in local coffee shops, restaurants, bars and neighborhood centers, and their numbers show more condoms are purchased at neighborhood centers than bars.

"We have to make them accessible neighborhood centers, libraries, other places teens are hanging out," says City Councilman Jose Ibarra. He wants to discuss the possible expansion with the library board.

A library spokesperson couldn't comment, saying there is no formal proposal. By Kaushal Patel, KOLD News 13

Personally, I think it's a good idea...but I can just imagine the backlash!
