FYI, if you already reported challenges to the Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse<https://libguides.osl.state.or.us/oifc/report> at the State Library, don't worry about also reporting to ALA.  I will be reporting that information.

[American Library Association Report Censorship]<http://www.ala.org/tools/challengesupport/report>

Hello Oregon Librarians,

I am Kirsten Brodbeck-Kenney, and I am your Oregon Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee co-chair. You may have seen communication<http://www.ala.org/news/member-news/2018/11/oif-seeks-censorship-information-2018> from the American Library Association about the importance of reporting censorship challenges for 2018 and OLA is helping them get the word out.

Please take five minutes to report any challenges that your library or institution has encountered in 2018 to the ALA online challenge reporting form<http://www.ala.org/tools/challengesupport/report> before Dec. 31, 2018. Here are 5 facts to remember:

  1.  Anyone can report censorship incidents and challenges to library materials or services. You don't have to be a librarian.
  2.  Reports can be made confidentially and anonymously.
  3.  Every report counts in determining the Top Ten Challenged Books<http://www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/NLW-Top10> for 2018.
  4.  You can be an Intellectual Freedom Fighter even if you haven't experienced a challenge by sharing this message on twitter<https://ctt.ac/Necna>.
  5.  Article III of the Library Bill of Rights<http://www.ala.org/advocacy/intfreedom/librarybill> states, "Libraries should challenge censorship in the fulfillment of their responsibility to provide information and enlightenment."
This information is important for all of us!
