Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week will be celebrated from September 26th to October 3rd.  Here at King Library we are getting a head start with two displays that will be shown starting September 21st and lasting through most of October.  There's a display called "Banned in America" on the first floor of King in the vestibule.  Among other things it features this interactive map.  The map shows where all the book challenges from the last year took place.  On the ground floor of King in the Instructional Materials Center (IMC) there's a display of children's books that have been challenged and/or banned over the years.

If you can't resist reading a "forbidden" book, you can see a list of  some challenged books that we own at King Library by going to our GoodReads site and finding our Banned Books Display 2009 shelf.
