Banned Books Week is here! Now in its 30th year, this annual event celebrates the freedom to read and brings to light attempts to suppress that freedom. In support of this year’s anniversary, we’ve thrown together a little display next to the reference desk. Drop by, grab a banned book to check out, and pick up one of our three button designs.
Also keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter account this week as our own Bo Baker reads salacious passages from challenged books in the collection. He begins with a particularly lurid selection from Harriet the Spy below.
