Welcome to the VLA Intellectual Freedom Committee!
The Vermont Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee is concerned with the rights of freedom of expression, and stands ready to assist in situations where these rights may be in danger. The committee hosts the John Swan Intellectual Freedom Lecture.
Report a Challenge
Please use the guidelines on VLA's Intellectual Freedom Committee Rapid Response Team page to let us know when your library has received a challenge to library materials, programming, policies, or services.
In addition, the American Library Association Office for Intellectual Freedom (ALA OIF) challenge report form allows you to report censorship and request assistance with the challenge. Alternatively, you can send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312-280-4221 / 1-800-545-2433 x4226.
