Terrific resource. Now this is a great way for you to get involved - maybe a media studies or library lesson project.

Taken from School Library Journal:
Librarians, bookstores, and others celebrating the freedom to read from September 24 to October 1 are encouraged to take part in this year's Virtual Read-Out on YouTube. The criteria are simple: create a video that's less than two minutes long of anyone reading a book that's been banned. If you choose to talk about a personal experience battling censorship, then feel free to extend the video to three minutes.
So what do you think guys - are you up for it. I cannot wait to see the videos.
