Celebrate National Library Week and Take a Stand for Books
Libraries and librarians nationwide play a vital role in transforming lives and strengthening communities.
The American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom recently issued a statement opposing widespread efforts to censor books in U.S. schools and libraries.
Unfortunately, Virginia has been subject to these censorship efforts, and in light of this, Arlington Public Library is taking a stand to build awareness of these challenged books.
