Not only is it a anime about libraries, and censorship but one of the characters wears glasses that are available in Japan from a particular store...
Shibasaki's eyeglasses can actually be bought at Zoff, a chain of Japanese eyeglass stores.
Now where is that credit card???
Based on a light novel series by Arikawa Hiro, illustrated by Adabana Sukumo.
In the year 2019, the explosion of information and misinformation became a direct threat to society. In a daring decision, it was decided to create a new government agency dedicated solely to information management. Now some thirty years later, the government still monitors and controls information, suppressing anything they find undesirable, but standing against their abuses of power are the libraries, with their special agents called ‘the book soldiers.’

Ok so does this just show my uber geekiness or am I really so sad that I'm getting excited by a character wearing glasses, and not just any but ones I could buy for myself, and based in and around libraries. I'm all for no censorship and freedom of expression and find this whole idea of a guerilla movement of librarians fighting for the rights of the people and their libraries just a little exciting!!
