September 25 – October 1 is Banned Books Week – the week that we celebrate all the freedom we have read anything we want, completely unrestricted! However, there are still many people who would like certain books to not be available due to what they consider controversial or unacceptable ideas found in them — hard to believe that even in this day and age this is happening! There were many books that were challenged in 2015 , some of which we have here in our library at NVC.
Stop by the library this week and see our incredible Banned Book interactive display where you can have your mugshot taken while reading a banned book! #bannedbooksweek2016
We are also going to have a banned books scavenger hunt starting tomorrow (Tuesday) — come and hunt for clues that will lead you all the banned books we have in our library collection!
Plus tons of other great displays and of course the chance to actually check out and read a banned book!
