Intellectual Freedom

We stand for the opportunity for all Utahns to read, view, listen, speak, write, or think freely. 

If you know of a situation where such an opportunity is being withheld or obstructed, especially in regard to Utah libraries, please contact the committee officers listed below.

Inform yourself and those around you!


Read ALA’s Library Bill of Rights  and Freedom to Read Statement.

We rely on librarians, educators, and the public to report censorship. If you have encountered censorship and book challenges in your library or school, please help us by using ALA’s Challenge Reporting form.
