The Biden administration has hired a new czar to monitor the efforts to remove banned books from school libraries across the country.
Matt Nosanchuk, Obama’s former administration official and non-profit leader began the role last week and will lead training sessions for schools and libraries on book bans.
“Across the country, communities are seeing a rise in efforts to ban books — efforts that are often designed to empty libraries and classrooms of literature about LGBTQ people, people of color, people of faith, key historical events and more,” an Education Department official said.

According to the American Library Association, which will be hosting the session, attendees will learn how the Education Department enforces federal civil rights laws, including how the law applies to libraries, how "book bans" might violate civil rights laws, and how to submit complaints about potential violations.
