Efforts to make banned and challenged books available to readers who can't access them in public schools or public libraries anymore are Band-Aids at best, say activists.
But taking some action is better than nothing.
NPR's Morning Edition featured a sampling of the individuals and organizations that are seeking to counter, in any way they can, the state-level actions to restrict reading material.
They include book giveaways, pop-up libraries, and open access to digital libraries.
One teen even, while not advocating this method, noted the futility of bans thanks to widespread internet access ... and the pirated books available there.
Take a little bit of heart in these counteroffensives on book bans as profiled by NPR.
