Elect to Read ... a Banned Book!

In this election year, it is important to remember how fortunate we are as Americans. We have the right to vote for members of our government, and our government cannot govern what we can or cannot read. This does mean some members of the public won't try to censor books that we have the right to read if we so chose. At the library, we celebrate "Banned Books Week" to be bring awareness to everyone's freedom to read. A display of frequently banned books is currently at the library. Patrons are welcome (and encouraged!) to check these books out.
