Banned Books & Censorship

Our public libraries are committed to upholding the values of freedom of expression and debate.

We believe that access to information should not be restricted on any grounds except that of the law.

We will not censor material on moral, political, religious, racial or gender grounds.

We believe that the ability to freely access information, whether factual or fictional, and regardless of media or format is a right, not a privilege.

To find out more visit the CILIP website.

Our librarians are uniquely placed to give you access to unbiased, uncensored material on any subject, in many formats. Ask a professional, ask a librarian.

Banned Books proudly brings together UK libraries with the following organisations who promote freedom of expression in this country and around the world.
