Banned Books Week

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment.  Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information, while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States.

The Fortuna Library will continue to celebrate Banned Books Week through the month of October.  Stop by and tell us why you read banned books!
