Banned Book Week - Celebrate Your Freedom To Read!

Imagine going to the library today and being told that you are not allowed to read Harry Potter, To Kill A Mockingbird or even The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. These are just a few of the books that were banned by schools, bookstores and libraries across the country in 2009.

Come to Musselman Library to celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Book Week, September 27th-October 1st. Visit the display of banned books on the main floor and check out a banned or challenged book to see what the fuss is all about! Feel free to browse the complete list of books banned in 2009 – you will be shocked to see what’s on there! Also on Wednesday, September 29th from 1 to 3 p.m. stop by the main floor to make your own button to show your support for reading banned books.
