Banned books week is coming up. It is Sept. 25th-Oct. 1st. The purpose of banned books week is the celebration of the freedom to read. Each year a different category is chosen to highlight those books related to that topic. This years focus is on "Diversity". Topics of diversity include the following:
One of the things the Dick Smith Library is doing this year to celebrate banned books week is by creating an interactive display. We will have carts of books located on each level that will be wrapped in brown paper, as the example below.
Students will be able to read a brief description of the book and the reason why it was banned. If they are interested in the book, they will need to check out the book in order to unwrap it to find out the title.
What would you guess is the title to this book?
Hint: "After all, tomorrow is another day."
So, while are you are in here studying next week, take a break to check out some of the banned books we have to offer!
