'NJ Bill Would Protect Librarians From Harassment Amid Push to Ban Books' by Mary Ann Koruth

Mary Ann Koruth writes the following in “NJ Bill Would Protect Librarians From Harassment Amid Push to Ban Books” for App. (part of USA TODAY):

Democratic lawmakers are looking to address the social media trolling and harassment that school librarians have faced amid calls in some New Jersey districts to ban or remove books from their library shelves.  

A new state bill called ‘Freedom to Read Act’ proposes that school boards be required to adopt policies governing material and its removal from school libraries. If it becomes law, the bill would also protect librarians from being sued by people who disagree with their book choices.
