Educational Resources

Intellectual freedom challenges can be extremely difficult to deal with. Therefore, the best policy is to proactively educate your trustees, staff, patrons and other community members so that you are less likely to have a challenge. If the worst happens and a challenge occurs and you have done your work ahead of time, you may just find that many members of your community will come to your aid. Here you will find some food for thought (though certainly not an exhaustive list) that may help you further educate your library stakeholders and avoid major challenges.
