What's Up Wednesday - Anatomy of a Book Challenge

Webinar Description: As the pressure to remove and censor books from our libraries increases, librarians have to be prepared to defend everyone's right to read. Learn how one school corporation has dealt with several recent challenges to their school library collections and has been able to educate their staff and community on the tenants of intellectual freedom. While challenges can be stressful situations, the presentation will offer you several tools, resources and guidance to help you find some unintended positive outcomes when these contentious situations find their way to your library.

Presenter: Tara White, Director of Literacy, Elkhart Community Schools

Webinar date and time: Wednesday, November 29, 2023 /10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EST

This webinar is eligible for 1 LEU
