The Campaign for Reader Privacy is an effort by the American Library Association, the American Booksellers Association, and the PEN American Center to collect signatures to petition Congress to reinstate safeguards for the privacy of library and bookstore records that section 215 of the USA PATRIOT ACT eliminated. A statement from the organizations gives some background and a list of supporting entities. More information about the efforts and the option to sign an online petition are available through the Campaign for Reader Privacy Web site linked above. The ALA’s press release explains why they joined the effort.
