It's Banned Books Week!

| No Comments

BANNEDBKSWEEEK.pngYesterday, September 22, was the first day of Banned Books Week, which runs until September 28.  BBW "was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries".  For more about the backstory behind this event, click here.   

Greenwich Library supports everybody's freedom to read what they want, especially at libraries.  We've put up a special web page here celebrating BBW and noting the 10 Most Challenged Books of 2012.  Which ones have you read?  Let us know.
