Challenged Materials
From time to time, we receive customer complaints or concerns about a specific title or type of material selected for, or weeded from, the collection. When we receive a complaint, it is taken seriously as we want to make certain that the fundamental principles of intellectual freedom are upheld. Read through our Customers' Complaints About Library Materials policy.
Challenged Materials at EPL
Books, magazines and other materials are challenged and banned all the time. Here's a record of challenged materials at EPL since 1998.
