Education is everything you need

FReadom to Read


Two blog site posts in a row about our Library getting a Safe House for our LGBTQIA+ kiddos. Why? Since we’re aggressively passionate about staying allies to our children. Also, the information is chock total of alarming illustrations where dad and mom, university districts, and communities are NOT supporting the freedom to study. The democratic flexibility to give ALL children the selection to come across publications devoid of censorship or barriers.

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

So, I wished to give you (dear reader!) an example of our Pleasure Month reserve display screen, our listing of Fiction textbooks, and how we advertise it to our kiddos. Most of this post is copied from our Daring College Library Site, Instagram posts, &

what I shared via our Canvas group announcement.

One of my most revered Library friends, Laura C. Davies (Adore her!) who I met when I was keynoting the ASTE Tech Conference in Anchorage Alaska had this to say on my Instagram write-up:

lauracdavies  Commented:

“Sure! I have my have classroom library, full of assorted books,
and for the 1st time in my career I essentially wondered if somebody
would complain about my choice. I am likely to keep on bringing new
guides into my classroom because pupils who want books that encourage
inclusion know where by they can locate them.”

What do you think?

Whilst you happen to be right here, get a copy of our Best 25 LGBTQIA+ Listing of Fiction Publications   Or come to the Library Media Heart for a paper variation on display. We’re that includes both fiction and nonfiction books!

From our Instagram Posts:

We have usually been and hope will generally be a #SafeSpace for all our little ones! #LGBTQIA+ #Ally We’re that includes both of those fiction and nonfiction books! #NOCensorship right here!

🏳️‍🌈One of my college students checked out a ebook from this exhibit suitable immediately after I concluded location it up and questioned – “Do my mother and father know what textbooks I test out from in this article?” To which I replied, “Nope. Not this 12 months. 

You have the correct to read regardless of what you want with total belief of confidentiality. We would never ever out you. But Politics can improve items. “

Sure, regrettably, there are some school districts and states that want to notify mothers and fathers of the guides they look at out!” HORROR!

Why does it seem to be like we’re going backwards and not forwards? i’d like to hear what you assume of the comments. It scares me!
