I really liked this #BannedBooksWeek display in the Teen Area. The display includes a printout of the full latest PEN America report: https://pen.org/report/banned-usa-growing-movement-to-censor-books-in-schools/
Our recent #BannedInTheUSA report found that nearly 1/2 banned titles were #YA books, but bans also included 317 picture books and 168 chapter books.
96% of bans were enacted without following the best practice guidelines outlined by @ALALibrary and @ncacensorship. #BannedBooks
“Young people of the world are my children, and I think we should all think that way.”
We think author @BenjaminASaenz may actually have the secrets of the universe. #VelshiBannedBookClub #Velshi
