ILA Statement of Intellectual Freedom

Monday, March 21, 2022 12:53 PM | Cresta Craner (Administrator)

A word from the Idaho Library Association,

The Idaho Library Association upholds the values of intellectual freedom and the freedom from censorship as inalienable rights provided by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. We are committed to protecting all Idahoans in their rights to write, read, and publish, and as such, are committed to providing free access to information.

As trained professionals, we recognize that not every viewpoint, book, audiobook, program or video is for everyone and provide a variety of materials accordingly. This is why we also support parents and families in their ability to choose from among our collections what they want to read, so that everyone has a voice or viewpoint to choose from.

ILA condemns censorship in all forms, supporting access to a variety of viewpoints. 

The Idaho Library Association is actively working to support librarians’ efforts to provide equal access of information to individuals, families, and all Idahoans.

There will be changes coming to the listserv soon, so please stay tuned for an announcement!

If you would like to speak with someone about Intellectual Freedom, Advocacy, or any other issues please email and

Thank you,

Jessica Bowman

ILA Vice President
