Every year, the American Library Association co-sponsors Banned Books Week, to help remind us not to take our freedom to read for granted. This year, Banned Books Week runs from September 24th - October 1st. Visit the library for banned book displays and handouts or go to the American Library Association's Banned Book Week site for more information.
Also, make sure you join us on Sunday October 2nd at 2:00 when City Lit Theater's Books on the Chopping Block performance returns. This will be a live concert reading of excerpts from the top ten most frequently challenged books of 2010. The performance runs 50 minutes and will be followed by a brief discussion. While the program is intended for adults, children in grade 6 and up are welcome to attend.
