Library Policies: Censorship



The Forefront Library believes in freedom of information for all, does not practice censorship, maintains that censorship is a purely individual matter, and rejects any attempt by a Library patron to exercise censorship to restrict the freedom of others.

The Forefront Library policy is to encourage and foster the above concepts and to act in a manner consistent with the American Library Association's Library Bill of Rights, the Freedom to Read statement, and the Freedom to View statement, adopted by the Forefront Board of Trustees on December 15, 2016.

The Library asserts its right to include in its collection authoritative resources that represent different perspectives on issues related to the collection's focus, including those deemed by some to be improper or unacceptable.
