FReadom to Read

Two weblog posts in a row about our Library remaining a Harmless Place for our LGBTQIA+ kiddos. Why? For the reason that we’re aggressively passionate about staying allies to our little ones. Also, the information is chock comprehensive of alarming examples the place moms and dads, faculty districts, and communities are NOT supporting the liberty to examine. The democratic freedom to give ALL youngsters the alternative to find books with no censorship or barriers.

It boils my blood! Why does it seem to be like we are heading backwards with FREADom to examine?

So, I needed to give you (pricey reader!) an example of our Pride Thirty day period book exhibit, our checklist of Fiction textbooks, and how we boost it to our kiddos. Most of this put up is copied from our Daring College Library Web site, Instagram posts, &

what I shared via our Canvas local community announcement.

A single of my most respected Library buddies, Laura C. Davies (Adore her!) who I fulfilled when I was keynoting the ASTE Tech Meeting in Anchorage Alaska had this to say on my Instagram publish:

lauracdavies  Commented:

“Sure! I have my own classroom library, total of numerous publications,
and for the first time in my occupation I actually questioned if a person
would complain about my assortment. I am likely to continue to keep on bringing new
guides into my classroom because pupils who want guides that really encourage
inclusion know in which they can find them.”
