It's Banned Books Week!


Celebrate Banned Books Week !


Banned Books Week in an annual campaign which celebrates our freedom of speech and the freedom to read. Over 1,000 books have been challenged since 1982. Pick up a banned title today. There is a display filled with banned books in the Teen Area. Curious about why a certain book is restricted? Stop by the Information Desk and we will let you know. Some new additions to the list are the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer and Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar, both are among the most circulated items in the Library!
