Banned Books Week officially starts next Monday, but we think it’s so important that we got started a little early this year!  Banned Books Week is our annual celebration of your right to read.  Many books are banned or challenged each year for content that  a small group of people find offensive.  This kind of censorship goes against our First Amendment rights as Americans.  Stop by the library today and exercise your FREADOMread a banned book!

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
