While you’re working on getting your programs ready for Teen Read Week, don’t forget about Banned Books Week happening from September 29-October 6th! YALSA’s Intellectual Freedom committee has just created their wiki and includes 50 Years of Reading Free, a ready made booklist for a display for BBW! Let us know about challenges in your library on the wiki’s Challenges section!
The National Coalition Against Censorship, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and ALA, produced an “informational booklet offering background and reference material about the graphic novel category.” The booklet can be found on the NCAC site as well as ALA. The article with this information can be found here.
Are any libraries highlighting particular graphic novels for Banned Books Week? Any libraries combining information on DOPA with BBW?
Any recently discovered online resources for graphic novels and libraries to share? I like Getting Graphic!which also has a great list of links related to graphic novels and libraries.
