Destruction of Libraries

The American Library Association deplores the destruction of libraries, library collections and property, and the disruption of the educational process by that act, whether it be done by individuals or groups of individuals and whether it be in the name of honest dissent, the desire to control or limit thought or ideas, or for any other purpose.

Adopted January 1971, by the ALA Council; at the 1993 Midwinter Meeting, Council voted to reinsert the policy into the ALA Policy Manual (Policy Monitoring Committee Report to Council, January 1993)
