   This list might be seen as a MUST read for every Freedom Fighter in the World. Please spread the list in an attempt to have as many people read these books as possible. If we realise that there are a lot of people who try to Bann or Challenge these Books, than there must be 'Some Value' in it, they want to keep secret from us ...

   The ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) receives reports from libraries, schools, and the media on attempts to ban books in communities across the country. We compile lists of challenged books in order to inform the public about censorship efforts that affect libraries and schools. The American Library Association condemns censorship and works to ensure free access to information.
