Library Loop: Banned Book Week Sept. 18-22

This year’s theme is “Books Unite Us: Censorship Divides Us.” The theme highlights that sharing our experiences not only educates us, but builds connections and empathy for one another. Censorship does the opposite by controlling voices and ideas.

For 40 years this annual event has brought librarians, booksellers, journalists, publishers, teachers and readers together in the common goal of defending the freedom to read and express ideas – even the unpopular or provocative ones.

Banned Books have been targeted for removal or restriction in schools, libraries, and bookstores. Your local libraries stock numerous banned titles and encourage you to stop by and check them out.
