Stop by our Young Adult Department to see the comprehensive "Banned Books" Display created by our YA Librarian, Leanne Posey. Any patron who checks out a "banned book" is eligible to win a prize, a gift certificate for Barnes & Noble! Just fill out the entry form and submit it when you check out at the Circulation Desk.
The display and contest promotes the 30th Anniversary of "Banned Books Week", a national event celebrating the freedom to read. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in both libraries and schools throughout the country. This yearly event brings together the entire book community - libraries, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types - in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas.
