Press Release: The Library Corporation [September 26, 2022]

TLC partners with ALA to Unite Against Book Bans

The Library Corporation (TLC) is pleased to partner with the American Library Association to Unite Against Book Bans, a national grassroots campaign to engage the public in the fight against censorship. This non-partisan campaign leverages the reach of national organizations representing librarians, educators, parents, authors, publishers, distributors, champions for civil liberties, civil rights, and equality, and more.

When we unite, we are stronger.

Research shows that a large majority of Americans across the political spectrum oppose book bans, yet efforts to remove books continue at an unprecedented pace. Unite Against Book Bans will engage and empower individuals and organizations to combat those efforts.

TLC invites you to raise your voice for the right to read:

  • Join thousands of others and sign up to Unite Against Book Bans.
  • Spread the word on social media and be sure to tag @TLCdelivers with the hashtag #UniteAgainstBookBans.
  • Organize in your community, reach out to elected officials and local press, and find out where candidates stand on this important issue.

Together, we will defeat censorship.
