Read a Banned Book


Many books face censorship.  During the month of September, celebrate your freedom to read by choosing to read a book that’s been challenged.  Check out our banned books display/bibliographies, or ask a librarian for a recommendation.  Once you’ve selected your book, you can enter our Banned Books Week drawing by filling out the form below (or stop by the library’s Information Desk) for a chance to win a Barnes & Noble gift card.  Entries must be received by September 30, 2018.  One winner will be drawn and contacted the first week of October.  For grades 6-12.
