News that Florida has rejected dozens of math textbooks because they supposedly included "prohibited topics" was a bummer to hear from our teacher friend while we vacationed.

The Brooklyn Public Library, in particular, is working hard to ensure everyone can access certain books.
Anyone in the US who's between the ages of thirteen and twenty-one can apply for a free Brooklyn Public Library eCard, as part of its Books UnBanned program.
Conveniently, the library has also added an easily browsable and check-out-able list of frequently challenged books.
Literary Hub has more on the Brooklyn Public Library's Books UnBanned program.
