Here you are, in school, trying to make it through finals and figure out life, and someone is telling you there's a book you can't check out because someone decided it was inappropriate. Believe it or not, not only can you fight this, but you should as long as you feel comfortable. By speaking up against book challenges and censorship, you're showing the adults around you that you understand what you're reading and you can decide for yourself what is and isn't appropriate, that access to information should be equal for everyone.
You can get a temporary library card that can be used for 90 days for ebooks on Libby or Overdrive. Whatever you check out will be known only to you. If you have a state issued ID or driver license that has your home address on it, you can get a library card at any of our branches without a parent/guardian.
This list has books that celebrate all things Pride, with books that have diverse casts of race, sexuality, and gender represented. It's just one of many diverse booklists SAPL has, showcasing books we have in our libraries.
