How do I celebrate my American nationality?
- By challenging social norms!
- By voting in elections!
- By reading censored books!
As individuals, we have the freedom to read whatever we choose, and as librarians, we should fight censorship as much as humanly possible. Censorship kills knowledge and information centers like libraries house knowledge. Differing opinions held within one facility are what challenge students and raise the consciousness of the reader. Let the reader choose what they want to read, just as you would want to choose for yourself. Celebrate Banned Books Week!
I also want to apologize for the lack of posts! School and work have both taken precedence in my life and I’m still striving to find that perfect balance.
