Banned Books Week: Banning Books Silences Stories.

Sept. 23-29 is "Banned Books Week". Each year, the American Library Association shines a spotlight on issues relating to censorship. The theme of this year's week, Banning Books Silences Stories, is a reminder that everyone needs to speak out against the tide of censorship. Come see the Library's display of Banned Books and find out what "they" don't want you to read!
