• Sign the Petition to End Book Bans Today!
    Proposed censorship measures in several U.S. states will regulate the books that you're allowed to read in our nation's libraries. Some could also lead to jailing librarians as a result of their commitment to free speech and access to library materials. If they succeed, you will lose your freedom to choose books for you and your family. Help fight against book bans and government censorship.

  • Stop Legislation that Would Arrest Librarians!
    A number of states are introducing proposed laws that would allow for civil and criminal prosecution of librarians if a community member disliked the content of a book on the shelf. However, award-winning authors like Margaret Atwood, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and James Joyce have been caught in the crosshairs of ‘obscenity’ challenges. Groups like Moms for Liberty have gone after books about Seahorses for being obscene as well as books about Johnny Appleseed and Hurricanes. Even Winnie the Pooh was called into question for not wearing pants. That means librarians could go to jail over Winnie-The-Pooh. We can't let legislation like this stand!
