How would you handle an attempt to ban a book in your school or library? Theresa Yost, School Media Specialist in Lounsberry Hollow Middle School and Mary Ann Politi, former Administrator & School Librarian at Wappingers Central School District will discuss real-life book challenges posed by parents and how they were resolved. Take part in a candid conversation and learn more about banned and challenged books.


Co-sponsored by the MSMC Class of 2019 & the Literary Society, an SGA organization, Censorship in the Library & Classroom will take place February 6th at 6 p.m. in the Kaplan Library, Room 218. This event has been approved for Academic Success FYE credit, but students at all levels are welcome. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there! 

Kaplan Library is changing – because of you!! Each day of Library Week introduces a new or improved service suggested by the Spring 2016 Student Library Survey. To celebrate, we’re giving away TWENTY $10 Visa gift cards throughout the week. Check our website for details!
