Thanks to Kristin Pekoll, West Bend's Young Adult librarian, for writing up her recent experience confronting censorship in her library. And thanks to blogger NotEmily for calling attention to the article, which I otherwise would never have known about.
Ms. Pekoll's article, titled Stand Up! Defending Teen's Right To Read at West Bend Community Memorial Library, can be read by clicking HERE. That's a PDF file, and if you have trouble downloading it with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, try Internet Explorer. The article is part of the October 2009 issue of VOYA, Voice of Youth Advocates, a library magazine (click HERE).
