Resolutions of State Library Associations
Supporting Legal Action by the American Library Association
To Challenge CIPA in Federal Courts


"Intellectual Freedom is the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored. Intellectual freedom encompasses the freedom to hold, receive and disseminate ideas."—Intellectual Freedom and Censorship Q & A

 
"Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."—Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas,"   The One Un-American Act."   Nieman Reports, vol. 7, no. 1 (Jan. 1953): p. 20.
