It’s Freedom to Read Week! If you’re not familiar, Freedom to Read Week is all about the freedom to think, freedom to read, freedom of the press, and freedom of speech. Naturally, this week is all about books, and how they can be controversial, but that they need to be defended at all costs.
We have an interesting display set up at the library showcasing books that have been banned for a variety of reasons. Have you read any of these? Would you agree with the choice to ban them? (We’re not actually banning these books in our library….this is just for display purposes.)
