ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ The Enfield Public Library and town officials have reached a compromise that will allow a screening of the Michael Moore documentary “Sicko” about the American health care system.

Mayor Scott Kaupin tells The Associated Press that the library will show the movie in the next few weeks as part of a series that will include multiple points of view on controversial topics.

The library last week canceled a planned screening of the movie, which is critical of the U.S. health care system, after the Republican mayor and some town council members objected.

That led to accusations of censorship.

Kaupin says the issue was not whether the film should be shown, but whether the library should offer just one side of the health care debate.
