Unshelved comic strip for 1/27/2016

Welcome CBLDF!


This week, we welcome the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund to Unshelved. CBLDF is a non-profit organization providing education, legal aid, and advocacy to protect the First Amendment rights of librarians, readers, booksellers, publishers, and creators of comics and graphic novels. Not only are they a librarian’s first line of defense when titles are challenged, they also offer an astonishing array of resources. I encourage you to visit their site and take a look at their Librarian & Educator Tools, where you’ll find discussion guides, collection building tips, and information on handling challenges. They also offer a Comic Book Club Handbook, and Raising a Reader! How Comics & Graphic Novels Can Help Your Kids Love To Read!, put together by an award-winning team and made possible by the Gaiman Foundation. Click through for more details or to find out how you can help support their important work!
