    • ALA’s Position on CensorshipWhile we firmly support the right of every reader tochoose or reject a book for themselves or theirfamilies, those objecting to a particular book shouldnot be given the power to restrict other readers’ rightto access and read that book. As members of apluralistic and complex society, we must have freeaccess to a diverse range of viewpoints on the humancondition in order to foster critical thinking andunderstanding. We must protect one of the mostprecious of our fundamental rights – the freedomto read. -Barbara Jones, director of the Office of Intellectual Freedom
