TSLAC to Offer Webinar On Responding to a Material Challenge

From the TSLAC website:

Has a book or DVD been challenged in your library? How should your library respond if someone challenges one of your books on social media?

The Texas State Library is hosting a 1.5 hour webinar at 1:30pm CST on Tuesday, February 2nd that will leave you better prepared to respond to challenges. Our speakers will be:

  • Jeanette Larson, Larson Library Consulting. Jeanette will provide strategies for responding to challenges that can be used by any type of library.
  • Kate Horan, director of the McAllen Public Library. Kate will discuss the library’s response to a DVD challenge and an informal challenge on Facebook.
  • Courtney Kincaid, former director of the Hood County Library. Courtney will discuss the library’s response to a well-coordinated challenge to several picture books that made national news.

We’ll also allow time for questions. Please register for the webinar and join us on February 2nd!
