Read Irresponsibly:
Banned Book Week
September 26th - October 3rd, 2009

Banned Book Week (BBW) is an annual campaign sponsored by the American Library Association celebrating the First Amendment, intellectual freedom, and a reader's right to choose. This week long event is observed in libraries, bookstores and academic institutions all over the nation. Banned Book Week serves as a reminder of the dangers of censorship and spotlights many literary classics that weren't, originally, all that well received.

The LITC invites you to join us as we celebrate challenged works.
Visit our New Books display near the Circulation Desk. On the shelves you can browse some titles that were deemed by many as "unfit to print."

Search through our catalog for books by BANNED authors:
Issac Asimov *Judy Blume*Truman Capote
Anne Frank*Rudyard Kipling*Harper Lee
Lois Lowry*Toni Morrison*JK Rowling
Shel Silverstein*Mark Twain*William Shakespeare*
and more...
