Mary and Jeff Bell Library
We had our Open House on Tuesday, Sept. 29th to celebrate Banned Books Week. Banned Books Week runs from September 27-October 3, it’s an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Check out the fun: http://bit.ly/1jD6dQJ
We talked with theatre students dressed as characters from their favorite banned books and there was a Scavenger Hunt--students explored the library and some of our newly renovated spaces! Voting is available for the next library bookmark. You can vote for your favorite in the library or on our Facebook page! We have our large display in the downstairs atrium exhibit area full of previously banned and challenged books with information on when and why the titles were challenged. Our banned books are available for checkout – take one home and read it!
We also caught a few people reading banned books--did we catch you?
