The September Project meets Teen Read Week!

I'm a teen librarian in Franklin Park, IL, and this year's Teen Read Week theme inspired my idea for our contribution to the September Project. The theme this year is "Get Real," and the September Project part is a display called "Get Real About Your Rights." It will be all about civil liberties and rights and how they do and don't apply to minors--everything from student free speech rights to Title IX to the legality of locker searches, etc., etc. The display (along with a selection of books) will go up on September 10th and stay up through Teen Read Week, October 16-22.
