Censorship: It's Not Just For Books!


When you hear about censorship in libraries, you may automatically wonder what YA book is under attack this time. However, many of the challenges to intellectual freedom we're facing go well beyond books. Online resources, speakers and events, programs, and other library initiatives are also coming under fire, and those of us in libraries may not always agree on what should be defended. Please join us for a conversation about today's threats to intellectual freedom and what you can do to stand up for free expression.
