Banned Books Week 2016
clear
September 25 to October 1 is Banned Books Week!
Banned Books Week LogoBanned Books Week is an annual event that celebrates the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information.

Check out frequently challenged books to explore the issues and controversies around book challenges and book banning. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. While books have been and continue to be banned, part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read.

Staff Reading Pick

Book: Let Me Die In His Footsteps by Lori Roy

Recommended by: Melanie

Two families, touched by an evil that has passed between generations in the Kentucky hills, led by superstition and ritual, finally come together to solve the mysteries that surround the incident that formed their hatred and shaped their lives. Spellbinding and suspenseful.

What a beautiful and lyrical novel. One of my favorites so far this year. Roy is so descriptive in her narrative that I could almost smell the dust and lavender. I see why this author has won awards for her writing and I definitely will be going back to read her earlier works.

Library Open Late Friday For Gallery Walk
clear
The library will remain open later than normal on Friday, August 12th to participate in the CVCA Gallery Walk. We will be featuring the art of:

Masha Laurence
Watercolor, pastel


Masha was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where her parents worked at the Bolshoi Theatre. From her youngest days, many of which were spent backstage and in the costume hall, she acquired a passionate love of costumes and everything to do with ballet and opera. Her other passion is books, the classics in particular, and that is why her artwork generally reflects classic literary characters and period costumes. Her favorite mediums are watercolor and pastel. She has a special place in her heart for miniatures, believing that even the biggest stories can be told in a small space. Masha has lived in Logan for the last 13 years with her husband and 4 children.

When: Friday, August 12th: 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
