  3. Developmentally Appropriate Collection Development (Idaho Commission for Libraries)

    June 14, 2023, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    There is a growing movement to deem an increasing number of library materials as “harmful to minors” or “obscene.” Recently, some are pointing at any representation of nudity in a book and declaring it to be “harmful,” for example in picture books about bathing or potty training. The graphic novel “Maus” was banned for brief nudity in 2022, and sex education books like “It’s Perfectly Normal” are often challenged due to cartoon depictions of sex and body parts. For this webinar we’ve asked a licensed psychologist to come speak to us about developmental and psychological considerations for deciding what kinds of nudity or sexual information are appropriate for children to see in books, and what it means to say something is “developmentally appropriate” in the context of library material. Please join us and licensed psychologist Carolyn Golden, PsyD to learn more about this topic.
