No New Posts Ideas for Promoting Reading

For anyone visiting this site, I doubt I have to tell you how imperative to emotional and mental growth reading is. In this board, we will share our ideas for promoting literacy and for encouraging the enjoyment of reading. When I hear of or think of a new idea, I'll share it; when you have one, please post it as well. After all, there can never be too many ideas when it comes to this topic.

No New Posts Banned/Challenged Books

For anyone who values creativity, free speech, the ALA's Library Bill of Rights, and the ALA's Freedom to Read Statement, the idea of a book being banned is both disheartening and disappointing. In this board, share any news stories that may be relevant to the topic, your experience with banned books, and your ideas to help fight back against censorship.
