How the Library Works
Within Minecraft, players explore a blocky, pixelated world, gathering materials, crafting tools, and constructing structures. The library is a marvel of digital architecture, comprising over 12.5 million blocks and designed by 24 builders from 16 different countries who dedicated over 250 hours to its creation. Its main dome spans nearly 300 meters, making it one of the largest in the Minecraft universe.
The library houses books that contain articles originally censored in countries like Egypt, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam. These articles, now republished in Minecraft in both English and their original languages, serve as a powerful reminder that the truth cannot be silenced indefinitely.
A Global Campaign Against Censorship
The Uncensored Library opened its virtual doors on March 12th, coinciding with the World Day Against Cyber Censorship. Under the banner of #TruthFindsAWay, the campaign encourages people to share their thoughts and raise awareness about anti-censorship efforts.
