Banned Books Week 2016

In support of the right to choose books freely for ourselves, the American Library Association and the Holdrege Area Public Library are sponsoring Banned Books Week September 25 – October 1, an annual celebration of our right to access books without censorship. This year’s observance commemorates the most basic freedom in a democratic society- the freedom to read freely- and encourages us not to take this freedom for granted.

Since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to or view.

American libraries are the cornerstones of our democracy. Libraries are for everyone, everywhere. Because libraries provide free access to a world of information, they bring opportunity to all people. Celebrate the freedom to read at your library.

Holdrege Area Friends of the Library – Children’s Book Drive

The Holdrege Area Friends of the Library are hosting a Children’s Book Drive during the month of September! Our goal is to build up the Children’s book section for the Friends of the Library book sale in October. If you have any used Children’s books that you would like to donate to the Friends, please bring them to the Holdrege Area Public Library or Fulmer’s U-Save Pharmacy and drop them in our donation buckets! The bucket at the library is located on the main floor of the library and the bucket at the pharmacy is just inside the front door. Your donations are greatly appreciated. Proceeds from events such as our book sales, help the Friends to fund programming and more for the Holdrege Area Public Library!
