Checklist: Preparing for Materials Challenges at Your Library
This four-step checklist, created by IFLS staff and located near the top of the Challenge Support & Intellectual Freedom Resources page, is recommended as a starting point in preparation for potential materials challenges at your library. The checklist includes tips and resources to guide library staff through each of the four steps. As always, please reach out to IFLS staff with any questions.

The toolkit is fully stocked and ready to use. Some libraries have already started using it! Let’s bring a lot of good news to Library Legislative Day. We’re hoping for 100% participation, and we’ll hand these directly to state officials on February 7.
Anne Hamland is adding elements to websites. Reb has added printable forms (no hearts this year), a hashtag to use and updated graphics. Contact Reb with any questions or concerns.
