Banned Books Week 2009
This week is Banned Books Week. Banned Books week is an annual event that celebrates freedom to read or the freedom to express one's opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular. Banned Books Week stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them. To see a list of books that others have attempted to ban, view The American Library Association's (ALA) list of Frequently Challenged Books. While you are on the ALA website take a look at their list of Banned and Challenged Classics. Chances are that you will find one of your favorites on that list.
Celebrate your freedom to read by selecting a book from a list of banned books available at the Logan Library.

Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
Recommended by: Becky, Childrens Librarian
This is easily the best children's fantasy novel I've read in years. Deftly weaving together fantasy and Chinese mythology, it tells the story of a plucky young girl who sets out on a quest to find the Old Man of the Moon and change her poverty-stricken family's fortunes. Beautifully written and totally captivating.
