So instead of writing a long, rambling post, I thought I'd take on a more audio visual approach and send you guys some videos which I think are relevant to banned books week. The video below, "Censorship is GREAT" by Jackson Pearce, is about the upsides of book banning. While I agree that book banning stinks, Jackson makes some great points: it can lead to more interest in banned titles, and more money being made off of them (and if a book makes more money, it's more likely to stay in print.
The next video is not as relevant, but will tell you about how you can find books at your library. Plus, as someone who has hopes of going to library school, I love this video. It was made by some students and librarians at the Information School at the University of Washington.
Enjoy the videos!
