Banned Books

We are continuing Banned Books Week (ended 2 October) with our display case in the Library. These and many other books are available for sale in the Friends Bookstore at unbeatable prices. Now is a good time to catch up on that reading list – Hemingway was banned! (those of you currently reading The Paris Wife); FScott Fitzgerald (calling all MN authors), JK Rowling (Harry Potter!) and SO many others.
Join the Friends in supporting your right to read.

The display illustrates banned books over several years, but the Library also has a number of books with the reasons that books and authors have been banned or challenged. This is not a new phenomenon, but there are more and more challenges every year.
