Banned Books Week

Sunday, September 18, 2022

Banned Books Week (September 18 - 24, 2022) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The library will have a display of recently and historically banned books. The display features statistics from across the country about what materials are being banned in libraries, why the books have been challenged or banned, and information about the freedom to read.

Checking out one displayed book will allow you to select a free book from the list of banned books to keep for your personal collection. There will also be trivia questions you can answer on the library Facebook page or at the library. 

Limit of one (1) free book per person.

For more information, please contact Zack North ( or 605-995-8480).
