Celebrate Your Freedom to Read
Each September, libraries and bookstores across the country observe the annual Banned Books Week.
Banned Books Week encourages readers to examine challenged literary works, and promotes free and open access to ideas and information.
From the Library Director's Blog: Stand Up for Books
"Hardly a week goes by when there is not a news story about a book challenge happening somewhere: "The Bluest Eye," "Maus," "Gender Queer," "The Hate U Give." Frequent targets are fiction and nonfiction about people of color, LGBTQIA+ protagonists, and books dealing with Jewish and Muslim religious/ethnic themes."
