Photo of display, displaying "Caution: Banned Books" textCelebrate the freedom to READ September 24- October 1, 2011.

The First Amendment protects the freedom of religion, speech, and the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the government. Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the benefits of free and open access to information by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States. In a majority of cases, the books were not banned, thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, booksellers, and members of the community to retain them in library collections. Find out more at the Banned Books Week official web site.

Please stop by the John M. Pfau Library to see our display and check out one of these many books.

We thank you for supporting the library!
