FReadom to Read


Two web site posts in a row about our Library becoming a Safe and sound Room for our LGBTQIA+ kiddos. Why? Simply because we’re aggressively passionate about being allies to our youngsters. Also, the information is chock total of alarming illustrations wherever parents, university districts, and communities are NOT supporting the liberty to read. The democratic independence to give ALL youngsters the selection to locate books with no censorship or barriers.

It boils my blood! Why does it appear like we’re heading backwards with FREADom to read?

So, I required to give you (pricey reader!) an case in point of our Satisfaction Month reserve display screen, our list of Fiction textbooks, and how we promote it to our kiddos. Most of this article is copied from our Daring School Library Blog, Instagram posts, &

what I shared by means of our Canvas local community announcement.

A person of my most revered Library close friends, Laura C. Davies (Really like her!) who I achieved when I was keynoting the ASTE Tech Convention in Anchorage Alaska had this to say on my Instagram put up:

lauracdavies  Commented:

“Yes! I have my own classroom library, total of varied guides,
and for the very first time in my job I basically questioned if somebody
would complain about my selection. I am heading to hold on bringing new
textbooks into my classroom simply because learners who want books that stimulate
inclusion know where they can locate them.”
