Minnesota has banned book bans, making it illegal for libraries to remove titles based on ideology. Democratic Gov. Tim Walz signed HF3782 into law last week, which prevents libraries from removing books “based solely on the viewpoint, content, message, idea, or opinion conveyed.” Instead, content curation will be managed by “a licensed library media specialist, an individual with a master’s degree in library sciences or library and information sciences, or a professional librarian or person with extensive library collection management experience.” “Censorship has no place in our libraries. As a former teacher, I’m clear: We need to remember our history, not erase it,” Walz said on Twitter/X. “Today, I signed a bill into law putting an end to book bans based on ideology in Minnesota.”
