 Hello/Bonjour,

Please see the information below for a free webinar with Richard
Beaudry (*please
note the time zone as well*).

This webinar will deal with Intellectual Freedom.

Many of you have likely learned from media reports that the Durham District
School Board (DDSB) in Ontario has removed David A. Robertson's The Great
Bear from its libraries' shelves pending the review of a challenge brought
against it.

Media reports do not include information regarding the challenge itself,
the DDSB's policy and procedure for managing challenges, nor the rationale
for removing the book from the shelves while the review is ongoing.

APLA has joined library associations across the country by writing to the
DDSB Trustees to request information about the challenge, their process and
their decision to remove the book prematurely from their shelves.

APLA has not yet received a response.

Veuillez consulter les informations ci-dessous pour un webinaire gratuit
avec Richard Beaudry (veuillez également noter le fuseau horaire).

Ce webinaire sera au sujet de la liberté intellectuelle.

Beaucoup d'entre vous ont probablement appris par les médias que le Conseil
scolaire du district de Durham (CSDD), en Ontario, a retiré le livre *The
Great Bear* de David A. Robertson des rayons de ses bibliothèques en
attendant l'examen d'une plainte.

Les reportages des médias ne contiennent pas d'informations sur la
contestation elle-même, sur la politique et la procédure de gestion des
contestations du CSDD, ni sur la raison pour laquelle le livre a été retiré
des rayons pendant que l'examen est en cours.

L'APLA s'est jointe aux associations de bibliothèques du pays en écrivant
aux administrateurs du CSDD pour leur demander des informations sur la
contestation, leur processus et leur décision de retirer prématurément le
livre de leurs rayonnages.

L'APLA n'a pas encore reçu de réponse.
