Library Loop: Banned Book Week Sept. 18-22

This year’s theme is “Books Unite Us: Censorship Divides Us”. The theme emphasizes that sharing our experiences not only educates us, but also builds connections and empathy for one another. Censorship does the opposite by controlling voices and ideas.

For 40 years, this annual event has brought together librarians, booksellers, journalists, publishers, teachers and readers with a common goal to defend freedom of reading and to express ideas – even the unpopular or provocative ones.

Banned books have been removed or restricted in schools, libraries and bookstores. Your local libraries stock numerous banned titles and encourage you to stop by and try them out.
