From September 18th to 24th, 2022, libraries across the United States are commemorating Banned Books Week. Since 1982, this awareness campaign celebrates the freedom to read, while drawing attention to banned or challenged books as well as those persecuted for reading or writing them. Over the years, our library has put together many creative displays to recognize Banned Books Week, even when we were temporarily removed to our Campbell Hall location! To view these and other book displays our staff has put together in the past, head over to our Flickr album here.
