Stamato Commentary: In this age of book bans, we should celebrate all libraries, big and small

May 26, 2023

Policy Fellow Linda Stamato discusses the importance of libraries in the current era of book bans and censorship. It emphasizes the need to celebrate all libraries, regardless of their size or location, as they play a vital role in providing access to diverse information and promoting intellectual freedom. Stamato highlights the positive impact of libraries on communities, fostering lifelong learning, supporting literacy, and serving as inclusive spaces for all individuals. She argues that libraries serve as crucial safeguards against attempts to control and limit knowledge, and advocate for increased support and recognition of these institutions in the face of growing challenges to intellectual freedom.
