  • Banned Book Club (Sanford)

    Ms. Olsen and a partnership with Hennepin County Library are excited to bring you Banned Book Club. Book bans have been sweeping the nation and what all of these book have in common according to the National Education Association is this: They reflect the diverse experiences of students of all races, of all abilities, of all religions. They open windows in students’ minds, so that we can see—and celebrate—all of us. We will read books that have been banned in other states library's and public schools. Between July 2021 and June 2022, more than 2,500 book bans were enacted in 138 districts in 32 states, resulting in the removal of more than 1,600 titles from school libraries and classrooms that serve roughly 4 million students, according to a report released this week by PEN America. Lets celebrate the freedom to read!
