Subject: Censorship exhibit for Banned Books Week


=20

The Long Island Coalition Against Censorship is an association of 22
member organizations (17 of which are public libraries and professional
library organizations) which have joined together to combat censorship
in public and school libraries. Following is a description of our
exhibit, Censorship in Schools and Libraries. It would be appreciated if
you would share this information via e-mail with schools in your state.


=20

In planning an exhibit for Banned Books week the last week in September
at another time of the year, you may wish to consider the 2005 edition
of the exhibit, "Censorship in Schools and Libraries" available from the
Long Island Coalition Against Censorship .The exhibit presents 30
illustrations of censorship each one approximately 11" x 14" with
accompanying text that is 11" x 14." The history of censorship in public
schools and libraries highlights incidents of censorship that have
occurred in the United States during the last 150 years. Included are
descriptions of the censorship of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, In the
Night Kitchen, The Catcher in the Rye, and the novels of Judy Blume and
Robert Cormier. U.S. Supreme Court decisions and lower court decisions
are an integral part of the exhibit. =20

=20

The new edition includes continuing efforts to censor the popular Harry
Potter's children's books (A few years ago, Harry Potter books were
burned in Alamogordo, New Mexico), and renewed efforts in a number of
states to challenge the significance of evolution in science classes.
Added to the exhibit is the decision by the United States Supreme Court
requiring public libraries receiving federal funding to install filters
on all computers connected to the Internet. In addition to the new
cases, there is an update of cases that have occurred since 1990.=20

=20

Quality copies of the exhibit have been reproduced which may be readily
presented on poster boards in libraries or classrooms and retained by
you for future exhibits. If space is limited, we suggest rotating the
panels during the time the exhibit is on display. Excerpts from the
exhibit are on our web site www.the-licac.org
<http://www.the-licac.org/> . Click on Exhibits, "Censorship in Schools
and Libraries" and excerpts. The cost of the exhibit including mailing
charges is $38.00 postpaid by check. For additional information contact
us coalcen@juno.com <mailto:coalcen@juno.com>  or call (516) 944-9799.
