Banned Books Week!

Feel like reading a dangerous book? Come to Musselman Library during Banned Books Week, September 24 through October 1, and check out the banned books display to discover which books have been considered so dangerous or offensive that people have tried to remove them from libraries and schools across the country.

This display will feature banned books and highlight the reasons given for wanting these books off the shelves. Stop by to learn which book was condemned because it would "corrupt the minds of young people", or to find a book that is "blasphemous and undermines morality". And, after you visit the display, why not also check out one of these banned books and celebrate your freedom to read!

Look for this display starting Friday evening, on the main floor of Musselman Library, where it will remain through the following week.
