Two web site posts in a row about our Library getting a Protected House for our LGBTQIA+ kiddos. Why? Mainly because we are aggressively passionate about being allies to our youngsters. Also, the information is chock total of alarming examples the place mothers and fathers, school districts, and communities are NOT supporting the independence to read. The democratic freedom to give ALL young children the decision to locate publications devoid of censorship or barriers.
It boils my blood! Why does it look like we are going backwards with FREADom to read?
So, I wanted to give you (pricey reader!) an illustration of our Satisfaction Month guide screen, our list of Fiction guides, and how we advertise it to our kiddos. Most of this submit is copied from our Daring College Library Web site, Instagram posts, &
what I shared by our Canvas group announcement.
One particular of my most respected Library good friends, Laura C. Davies (Enjoy her!) who I met when I was keynoting the ASTE Tech Conference in Anchorage Alaska had this to say on my Instagram submit:
“Indeed! I have my own classroom library, full of numerous books,
and for the very first time in my career I truly wondered if someone
would complain about my variety. I am going to keep on bringing new
books into my classroom mainly because college students who need guides that motivate
inclusion know where by they can obtain them.”

You have the appropriate to read through regardless of what you want with entire perception of confidentiality. We would never ever out you. But Politics can modify things. “
Yes, unfortunately, there are some school districts and states that want to notify mother and father of the textbooks they check out out!” HORROR!
