Intellectual Freedom

“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.”

~ from Intellectual Freedom and Censorship Q & A

The Kansas Association of School Librarians (KASL) supports The Library Bill of Rights and American Library Association’s (ALA) interpretation of these rights with relation to access to resources and services in the school library media program, and is committed to upholding and defending the intellectual freedom of all Kansas school library patrons.
