Banned Books Week

This is Banned Books Week, a week dedicated to fighting censorship and celebrating freedom. Did you know that, in many countries, people do not have the right to read anything they want? And, even in this country, books get challenged or banned every day? Often the rationale for challenging books is to "protect children" from things deemed inappropriate. But, that includes you! Do you want people telling you that you can't read certain books?

Celebrate your freedom to read - read a banned book! The display in the Teen Corner includes books that have been banned or challenged in recent years. They're covered in brown paper with the reasons they were challenged written on front. Can you guess what the titles are? Flip the books over to find out; you may be surprised.
