CONGRATS to the Winners of Our Literary Pumpkin Design Contest!

Happy Banned Books Week 2020!

Banned Books WeekΒ is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. This event was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community β€” librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types β€” in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas.
