Celebrate the Freedom to Read

It’s Banned Books Week and we’re holding a virtual read -out all week long to recognize the importance of the freedom of information.  Choose an excerpt from your favorite banned or challenged book, come to the Teen Zone, and be recorded reading your excerpt. We’ll share your reading on the American Library Association’s dedicated YouTube channel as well as on our website.

Please limit your reading to two minutes. You will need to bring a photo/video consent form signed by your parent/guardian with you to the library.

You can also collect seven banned book trading cards designed by local artists, and of course, pick up a challenged book and celebrate your freedom to read!
