Join us September 22-28, 2013 for Banned Books Week! Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.  The library will have an interactive display of challenged and banned books for patrons to peruse and a commemorative bookmark for patrons to take home.  There will also be a Banned Book Brown Bag Lunch at the library on Tuesday, September 24 from 12 noon - 1:00 pm.  See event listing for details.
