Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read, September 21-27, 2014


From the American Library Association Web Site

What is the difference between a challenge or banning?

A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group.  A banning is the removal of those materials.  Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others.  Due to the commitment of librarians, teachers, parents, students and other concerned citizens, most challenges are unsuccessful and most materials are retained in the school curriculum or library collection.

Banned Books Virtual Read-Out!

For the fourth year in a row, readers from across the country and around the world will be able to participate virtually during Banned Books Week 2014. Participants may proclaim the importance of the freedom to read by posting videos that will be featured on a dedicated Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out YouTube channel. Watch celebrity videos for the Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out.

Please visit the Banned Books Week website for more information

Fizz, Boom, Read! off to a great start

The Summer Reading Program is off to a great start!  We tested our senses of smell and touch with a blind test in each area.  Interesting guesses were made by the kids.  Then in the afternoon session, Deputy Jordan Bradley stopped by with his K-9 partner, Brody.  They gave a great demonstration, answered all sorts of questions and even let us get up close pet Brody for a job well done!

It was another great day to be @ the librarySRP pics week 1 30may14 011 SRP pics week 1 30may14 010SRP pics week 1 30may14 041 SRP pics week 1 30may14 028 SRP pics week 1 30may14 026 SRP pics week 1 30may14 012 SRP pics week 1 30may14 042 SRP pics week 1 30may14 009
