Book ban movement urges librarians to unite against book bans

Banned Book Week began 40 years ago as a celebration of the freedom to read, but the librarian-led movement is transforming into the world of grassroots organizing as an unprecedented number of efforts to book bans have emerged across the country.

The campaign, Unite Against Book Bans, is a collaborative effort launched by the ALA and a wide range of individuals and groups to provide local residents with awareness and organizing tools to combat the growing effort to book bans and censorship, said Deborah Caldwell-Stone, director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom.
