Banned Books Week 2011

Banned Books Pins
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
We are celebrating Banned Books Week with a large display in the first floor hallway case, and these colorful pins.

Discussion about book challenges and banning books from libraries have already risen between students and staff alike.

Feel free to come have a look! Our display highlights just a fraction of banned or challenged books, and gives some of the reasons behind the attempted or successful bans.

Did you know, for example, that Roald Dahl's children's book James and the Giant Peach is often challenged? Come in and find out why!
