Banned Books Week — the online event!

Do you want to win a banned book of your very own? Share your thoughts, comments and experiences about banned and challenged books and materials below and be entered for a chance to win. SCALA will randomly select one commenter to win a copy of one of the four books given away during Thursday's on-campus event.

After Rancocas Valley Regional High School faced a full-fledged book challenge last spring, librarian Dee Venuto presented her take at ALA's Annual Conference. Check out her talk here (starting around 34 minutes):
