Banned Book Week

Standard

I’ve been sitting around on the library counter watching people come in all week and ask about banned books. Nobody knows what they are! I just happen to know. A banned book is one that someone, somewhere declared ‘offensive’ or ‘wrong’.  Books aren’t banned here in the Monarch Library, of course… read whatever’s here!  But some people in other libraries have banned Harry Potter books, Huckleberry Finn…even the dictionary! Yeah, I know! (The dictionary was banned because it contains bad words and sexual terms.Seriously.)

You can come in to the library and see some of the books that have been banned, or check on campus for posters that have been put up to describe banned books. If you find one, come to the library and tell Ms. P what poster you saw and why that book was banned, and you’ll get an entry for a drawing for your own copy of a great book!  The contest goes on through next week, so start looking for those posters!
