Banned Books Week

Once again, it’s time to defend our right to read; to decide for ourselves what our children should be allowed to read, or to simply defend the freedom of ideas even though they may be unpopular or controversial.  Each year, we defend our right to choose our ideas with a banned books table.  Please come in and browse our selection. These books have all been challenged with removal and restrictions in schools and libraries, but are (fortunately) still in print.  Their availability is due to the efforts of teachers, librarians, booksellers and impassioned citizens who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read.

How are these titles chosen for censorship? You can find out here.  Keep reading. Keep challenging your mind and keep challenging others who wish to define what you can read.
