Banned books and more!

It has been an exciting day in and out of the library.  Before any power outages, the other half of the 4th grade class worked on their "animals should not borrow library books" lesson.  They came up with some great ideas!  Check them out here!

Celebrating Banned Books Week: Our 5-8 grades had a visit from Kate Hudson from the Multnomah County Library.  She presented "Feasting on the Forbidden Fruit."  This presentation was about censorship and banned/challenged books.  The students were shocked to learn some of their favorite titles (even some that have been read aloud in a class) were on that banned/challenged list.  Students went through titles that Kate brought with her to figure out why they thought it might have been on the list of banned/challenged books.  Want a great conversation?  Ask them their thoughts about banned books!
