June News and Programs from Hopkinton Library

By contributor,

On March 22, 2023, The American Library Association (ALA) released data that showed there had been 1,269 demands to censor library books in 2022. That is the highest number of recorded demands for removal since ALA began compiling data about censorship over 20 years ago.

2,571 unique titles were targeted, a 38% increase from the 1,858 unique titles targeted in 2021. Perhaps not surprisingly, of those titles, the vast majority were written by or about people of color and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
