Welcome to the Idaho Library Association!
Your ILA team has created some merchandise to help you show your support for Idaho libraries and fight censorship. We have two online “stores” for you:
Bonfire – shirts, tank tops, and sweatshirts
Redbubble – stickers, magnets, and notebooks
All proceeds from this merchandise will go to support the Idaho Library Association!
Now that 2022 is officially behind us, please take a moment to reflect and report any 2022 challenges at your library to ALA. Since 1990, ALA's Office of Intellectual Freedom has maintained a database on challenged materials. Some of this information is gathered from the media, but much of it depends on reporting by all of us working in libraries.
Please use this form to report any challenges that happened at your library in 2022. These are due to ALA by February 3, 2023. This includes challenges to materials (print or electronic) as well as programs, meeting room usage, computer or Internet access, or even patron records. Reporting may be done anonymously and you can provide as much or as little information as you wish.
I also encourage you to reach out to me or your ILA board members if you would like assistance with challenges in your library. We are here to help!
