Protecting the Freedom to Read: More than “Beloved”: A Brief History of Book Banning in Virginia (Virginia Library Association)
In the last year, libraries and schools around the nation have seen an increase in book challenges and bannings. While many of these issues play out in school boards and in the legislature, many of you may be wondering what you can do to help. A group of library advocates and leaders from the Virginia Library Association have created this zoom series for August, September and October (in addition to an in-person session at the VLA Conference in Norfolk).
