Banned Books Display

Browse the List of Books

In support of the right to choose books freely for ourselves, the American Library Association and CBC Library are sponsoring Banned Books Week, now through October 3rd, an annual celebration of our right to access books without censorship. This year's observance commemorates the most basic freedom in a democratic society—the freedom to read freely—and encourages us not to take this freedom for granted. Since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to or view. CBC Library and thousands of libraries and bookstores across the country will celebrate the freedom to read by participating in special events, exhibits, and read-outs that showcase books that have been banned or threatened. Please come by and check out the display today! Now, more than ever, celebrate the freedom to read @ your library! Read an old favorite or a new banned book this week.
