No Book Bans Here: Pine-Richland
Book challenges have begun for materials in our high school library. All books are selected by trained librarians to be age-appropriate, relevant to our student population & have literary merit. We need books available that appeal to a variety of readers. Most of the books challenged to date feature diverse characters. Parents *already* have the ability to restrict access for their child — they should not be able to limit what is available to everyone!

Why is this important?
We must come together to make it clear that our community will NOT accept the most restrictive voices making decisions for all of us.
