Centering Teens in the Fight against Censorship

On-Demand
Webinar
Public libraries empowering and educating teens and young adults to fight for their right to read freely.

Attempts to ban books from classrooms and libraries disproportionately target stories for and about young adults, especially those reflecting historically marginalized communities. Public libraries have a role to play in empowering and educating teens and young adults to fight for their right to read freely. In this on-demand webinar, representatives from Brooklyn Public Library, Seattle Public Library, and Austin Public Library share strategies for helping teens to engage in intellectual freedom advocacy and make their voices heard.
