September 22nd through the 28th is Banned Books Week.
Banned Books Week is the national book community’s annual celebration of the freedom to read. Hundreds of libraries and bookstores around the country draw attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books and hosting a variety of events. The 2013 celebration of Banned Books Week will be held from September 22-28.
Want to support our democratic freedom to read? Then come to the library’s reference desk and check out a banned book!
Alternately, you can also visit our Challenged Books LibGuide for reading suggestions.
Thanks to our Adjunct Librarian, Sarah Mailloux, for organizing the display!
