2013 - 2014 BANNED OR CHALLENGED BOOKS: "The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from Iraq – Jeanette Winter"

The book is about a librarian who sneaks books out of a library during the U.S. bombings in Iraq. The librarian works with members of the community to keep the books safe until the war is over and a new library can be built. It was challenged in New York schools because of its violent illustrations and storyline. You can read the story of Alia Baqer, the librarian the book was based upon, here, and you may find the book here in Collins.
