Banned Books Week

Did you know that Banned Books Week is just coming to an end? Yup, from Sept. 30th to Oct. 6th, Librarians, book Lovers, and teachers celebrate YOUR right to choose what you read by fighting attempts at censorship.  Every year the most challenged books are announced, and book lovers everywhere attempt to convince other people to read books that have been banned elsewhere. 

This year some funny posters were even created... check it out!

That's right.  It's President Snow from the Hunger Games Trilogy. Did you know that The Hunger Games has been banned in some places in the US? Exercise your rights to Intellectual Freedom and pick it up, if you haven't already!
In fact, there are lots of banned/challenged books that are just looking to find someone to pick them up! Show them some love...
