  • 1.  Potential ban in public school Libraries - MTG 10/21 - need input

    Good evening,


    I'm writing to request advice/input for a  school board meeting this Thursday 10/21. I will include links to relevant information.  School administrators are being called to answer to objection of School board member to "offensive" books in public school Libraries.  Relevant partners have a proposed joint statement. Any other thoughts or strategies appreciated.
