Be an Advocate

Cumberland County Library System is pleased to announce that we have partnered 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, and champions for civil liberties, civil rights, and equality.

When we unite, we are stronger.

Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us.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. 

We invite you to raise your voice for the right to read:

  • Join with thousands of others and sign up to Unite Against Book Bans.
  • Spread the word on social media: The online toolkit has a variety of social media graphics and suggested posts that both individuals and organizations can use to raise awareness and encourage more supporters to join our campaign.
  • Use the toolkit to organize in your community, reach out to elected officials and local press, and find out where candidates stand on this important issue. Be sure to tag us @cumberland county library system and use the hashtag #UniteAgainstBookBans to let us know when you’ve taken action!

Together, we will defeat censorship.
