Kids, Know Your Rights!
Amanda O'Brien at the Skokie Public Library has put together a really sharp looking four-page PDF called Kids, Know Your Rights! I have passed it on to our teen librarian to get it into the hands of our youth. It defines intellectual freedom, describes challenges to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and discusses the fight against censorship. The last page recommended nonfiction and fiction books to help teens grasp the concepts and discuss their rights. This work is sponsored by the Intellectual Freedom Committee 2005-2007 of the Association for Library Service to Children. It should be widely distributed.
