Banned Books Week 2014

It's BACK! Happy Banned Books Week 2014! This event is all about celebrating the freedom to read. (Also, Happy Banned Websites Awareness Day, today - Wednesday 9/24).

If you stop by the LMC (I'm hoping you do!), you will notice some displays containing partially hidden books. These 75+ books are Dartmouth High School Library books. Throughout history, these titles have been challenged, banned, burned, censored, restricted, and removed in other libraries across the United States, as recently as this year. Unfortunately, this still happens today in the 21st century.

A library is a place where people can come to find information about all topics. A librarian’s job is to promote, provide, and protect the freedom to read and the freedom of choice. How would you feel if someone you don’t know told you that they personally disagreed with a book, and therefore, you couldn’t read it?

A library is a place where you can choose the materials you would like to read, and others can do the same. So choose a book, any book, and read…because you can! Not everyone across the U.S. can do the same.

~ Mrs. Z
