What Updates Should Library Collection Policies Include?: Book Censorship News, February 23, 2024
Book Riot
by Kelly Jensen
1d ago
It’s been close to two years since writing about why libraries need to have strong book challenge policies; in the fall, this guide helped to consider where and how to actively incorporate inclusivity in collection policies. Because library collection policies are living documents and need to be regularly updated to accommodate the climate around them, it’s time to revisit this topic and look at what contemporary book banning has made clear needs to be better articulated in these policies. This guide is for library workers, of course, but it is also useful for library advocates. It is an oppor ..read more

Welcome to Read this Book, a newsletter where I recommend one book that needs to jump onto your TBR pile!

This week, I’m recommending a cookbook that I can already tell will be my favorite cookbook that I read this year.

That’s part of why how-to books for kids are so important, as they can help guide children in making and building things in imaginative ways. Learning to craft and build is a form of playtime and is especially important for the development of a five to nine-year-old’s brain. Additionally, skills like origami, drawing, gardening, and cooking can help with promoting physical abilities; think of how using craft tools like scis ..read more

8 of The Best “No Plot Just Vibes” Books To Slow Down With
Book Riot
by Yashvi Peeti
2d ago
When I first started reading, I was only recommended books with a clear plot line. I would be compelled by my curiosity to keep reading. I would want to know how the story unfolds and the events that move it along. Some books I wouldn’t be able to put down because the chapters would end with cliffhangers, and others because I was too engrossed in that world of high fantasy. After a year or two of reading this way, I found my way to books with a less compelling plot or sometimes even no plot at all. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed them just as much, if not more, than those with the plot ..read more

Book Riot
by Kelly Jensen
2d ago
Despite excitement and enthusiasm–in addition to being one of the states with the fewest book bans over the last several years–the bill which would limit book bans in the state of New Mexico has been killed. House Bill 123 was filed by Representative Kathleen Cates and mirrored much of the bill that passed in Illinois last year. Public libraries in New Mexico would be required to include the American Library Association’s Library Bill of Rights and include language that notes books will not be excluded or removed from shelves due to “partisan or doctrinal disapproval” in collection policies in ..read more
