Banned Books Week
This week (Sept 28 - Oct 4) 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 and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those 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 list of Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books in 2000-2007.
Celebrate your freedom to read by selecting a book from a list of banned books available at the Logan Library.
