Hello Utah Librarians,I am Wanda Mae Huffaker from Salt Lake County, and I
am your Utah Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee chair. You
may have seen communication from the American Library Association about the
importance of reporting censorship challenges for 2018 and ULA is helping
them get the word out.
Please take five minutes to report any challenges that your library or
institution has encountered in 2018 to the *ALA online challenge reporting
Dec. 31, 2018. Here are 5 facts to remember:
1. Anyone can report censorship incidents and challenges to library
materials or services. You don’t have to be a librarian.
2. Reports can be made confidentially and anonymously.
3. Every report counts in determining the Top Ten Challenged Books
4. You can be an Intellectual Freedom Fighter even if you haven’t
experienced a challenge by sharing this message on twitter
5. Article III of the *Library Bill of Rights
“Libraries should challenge censorship in the fulfillment of their
responsibility to provide information and enlightenment.”
This information is important for all of us!
