League of Women Voters April 4 Lunch & Learn:
Understanding What’s Behind Book Challenges and Bans

Vicki Wood

The League of Women Voters April Lunch and Learn will take a deeper dive into what’s behind the recent attempts to ban books in school and public libraries and explore the social changes that have fueled the uptick in book challenges.  Guest speaker Vicki Wood will offer ways to respond effectively using education about what libraries do and enlisting citizen advocates.

Wood recently retired from Lincoln City Libraries as Coordinator of Youth Services. She is a mediator with the Nebraska Mediation Center, past president of the Academic Freedom Coalition of Nebraska, and Nebraska Library Association’s Advocacy Committee member.

The event is on Thursday, April 4,  from noon to 1:00 PM. It is free and available via Zoom to the public throughout Nebraska.  Membership is not required.

For over 100 years, the League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, has encouraged informed and active participation in government, worked to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influenced public policy through education and advocacy. Membership is open to all. For further information regarding the League, go to
