The controversy around Tintin and his trip to Congo isn't news to those aware of censorship issues. How do libraries deal with patrons and book challenges like Tintin au Congo? NYTimes shares the Brooklyn public libraries approach as well as some interesting examples of book challenges.

  1. If you really want to find out about censorship in America's public libraries and schools check out the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression's new google map detailing incidents of bans and challenges all across our great nation. The map, created to promote Banned Books Week (Sept 26 - Oct 3) can be found on the official BBW website and is well worth checking out!!!!
