Well, what do you think?
Okay, truth time: This is a totally made-up book. But the question is real, and it's a biggie. One of the duties performed by our Board of Directors is making final decisions on challenges to library materials. Challenges can come in different forms, and working with community members who bring up book challenges is an important task that requires good people skills, empathetic listening, and an understanding of why intellectual freedom is one of the most important things offered by a public library.
Our Board of Directors is taking applications for two seats opening up in 2021. If questions about materials that do and do not belong in our libraries are important to you, you should apply! Or, you should encourage someone else to apply. Do you know someone who really values intellectual freedom? Do you know someone who has strong opinions on censorship and would like to learn more? Are you friends with or a colleague of someone who makes good decisions under sometimes-difficult circumstances? They're the person we're looking for.
Apply at mylibrary.us/board
