The final installment of the J.K. Rowling's enchanting Harry Potter series -- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- is due out on July 21. The latest Potter movie will be screened on July 13.

If, like RSR and family, you're eagerly awaiting both events, you might want to take a moment to think about library censorship and what you can do to prevent it.

Fears of "witchcraft" have made the Harry Potter books a popular target of the religious right in recent years. However, Americans United for Separation of Church and State notes that most censorship efforts collapse in the face of counter mobilization by concerned community members.

They've put together a handy guide for citizen action here. Why not take a look, take their advice, and then get busy defending freedom of the press. That'd be a great way to celebrate publication of the seventh and last Potter volume.
