Celebrate the freedom to read with the Andersen Library during Banned Books Week. The Library will be joining the American Library Association as it celebrates 30 years of Banned Books Week activities. The event will run from October 1-5, 2012. All activities will be located on the main floor of the Library, near the circulation desk.
A new display in the Library highlights the titles that have been banned or challenged from many schools in America. You may be surprised by the many popular titles, such as Anne Frank and Harry Potter. The Library is recognizing the week by hosting of numerous free events available to all students:
October 1- Be featured in your very own Read Poster
October 2- Willie Warhawk will visit the library to support the freedom to read
October 3- Make your own letter tile coasters
*All events will run from 1-4pm and are FREE.
The American Library Association created Banned Books Week to highlight the value of access to free and open information. The event has spread from a small library event to a national campaign about the harms of censorship. Stop on down to the Library during Banned Books Week and celebrate the freedom to read!
