In today’s world, the battle against censorship is more critical than ever. We believe in the power of knowledge and the importance of unrestricted access to information. That’s why we’re excited to share a video that addresses the rising censorship issue in America and how it affects libraries, books, and the right to read.

This video features Tracie D. Hall, former Executive Director of the American Library Association and a passionate advocate for the right to read without constraints. Tracie has witnessed firsthand the impact of rampant censorship and book bans in the United States.

We strongly encourage all our members to watch this enlightening video. It offers valuable insights into the censorship issues we’re confronting and how libraries and books are pivotal in upholding our right to access information freely.
