[ARCHIVED] Freedom to Read Week

Banned Books Week Banner

Censorship Leaves Us in the Dark. Keep the Light On! ~ We're celebrating Freedom To Read Week, aka: Banned Books this week at the library.

Every year libraries across the United States celebrate our freedom to read. And by freedom to read—we mean anything. There are people in the world who read books and think that they are vulgar, inappropriate, and that they should be banned - completely removed from shelves where anyone can read them. Imagine a world where  all books in the library were pulled off the shelves because they offended someone… we wouldn’t have any books left! When we celebrate Banned Books Week - we are not only celebrating and highlighting books that have been banned in various libraries - but also books that have been challenged and remained available to be read.
