Banned Coloring Books @ Catskill
September 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Start off 2022 Banned Book Week with Banned Coloring Books!
Books have been challenged and banned for many different reasons. Some of the reasons include: depicting talking animals, being too scary for children, including nudity and profanity, and including messaging deemed controversial.
In this program, we’ll build our own coloring books using pages of popular characters and notes about why their stories have been challenged or banned. Children will be introduced to the difference between a challenge and a ban, and learn about how libraries decide which books to include (or not include!) in their collections.
Best for ages 4-10 and their caregivers.
