A library only has so much money. They have to choose < 100 out of every 10,000 books published. They usually pass on titles like "Mink On Turf -- Jenny Does the Home Team" and "Why God Wants Us to Burn Arabia". In other words they have to choose titles which best support their mission. This discretion is left to the Director and his staff. The other 9,900 which they DON't buy are not in any wise "banned" by the library and to collapse the two ideas is absurd. If I wrote a book, and a library board or executive saw fit to buy a copy, I would be honored; if they did not, I would get over it quite soon.
