Education Library celebrates Banned Book Week

The Education Library is participating in the national Banned Book Week, September 25 – October 1. In a celebration of free and open access to information, books will be highlighted that that have fallen under intense scrutiny for various reasons and access allowed to these books rather than restrict them. 

Some favorite books that have been targeted for removal or restrictions on a national level in the past include the Harry Potter series, “Looking for Alaska” by John Green, and “The Lord of the Rings” series. The Education Library will highlight these challenged books and others in a display.
