Book Bans & Censorship:
A Visit From A Special Guest

We hosted a discussion with special guest Ms. Ewa-Dreidzic Elliot, a librarian at The College of New Jersey and immediate past president of the New Jersey Association of School Librarians. Over Zoom, she sparked a conversation with the students about the reasons behind book bans and the current landscape in our state.

The ABC's of Book Banning

We hosted three separate viewings of the Oscar- nominated short film The ABC's of Book Banning where students learned about the book banning issue and became passionate through these stories.
