In this article, the author shares how she encountered unique challenges when parents complained about some books in the school library. Typically, parents' complaints focus on objectionable language, references to witchcraft, and mention of alcoholic beverages. To protect students' right to read a variety of books, the author contends that librarians should be prepared to respond effectively to complaints. Here, she shares the strategies she found particularly effective when dealing with parents' questioning of books.
