Alabama Public Library Service votes to create list of potentially banned books

The Alabama Public Library Service voted Wednesday to create a list of books it considers inappropriate for children.

The new list, which was voted on unanimously by all seven board members, will be curated by parents, CBS 42 reported. The list will be made available online and each local library will decide whether to remove books since the state agency does not have the authority to outright ban books from libraries.

“Parents still have access to it if they want to purchase it for their children,” John Wahl, board member and chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, told WSFA. “But we don’t want it placed in libraries, where innocent children might find it by chance.”

A March report from the American Library Association showed there had been more than 1,200 book challenges across the United States.

The ALA’s Deborah Caldwell-Stone told the Associated Press she had “never seen anything like this.”

“The last two years have been exhausting, scary and outrageous,” she said.

No timetable has been set for when the Alabama Book List will be completed.
