Banned Books Week: Censorship is a Dead End

2020-08-18 11:49:52

Join us September 27-October 3 for Banned Books Week! The 2020 theme is Censorship is a Dead End. Find Your Freedom to Read. Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment.

To celebrate, library staff will be sharing videos on our social media about their favorite banned book. We are also hosting a Banned Book Guessing Game. Every day during Banned Books Week, a video will be posted to the library’s social media where 1-2 sentences from one banned book will be read. These sentences will also be posted on a display inside the library. It will be a different book each day. Can you guess what the book title is from the sentences read? Submit your guesses on our social media, or in-person at the library, for entry into a drawing for a book related prize. One guess per day, per person, please.
