Can you imagine a library that's missing your favorite books, just because someone you don't even know decided their content is inappropriate for you -- and everyone else?
- The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
- The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
- Beloved by Toni Morrison
- A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
- content unsuitable for the book's intended age group
- sexual content
- discriminatory content
- offensive language
- occult or supernatural themes.
NCC Library is already prepared for this year's Banned Books Week, Sept. 27-Oct. 4. Our own Miss Gineen, who creates the wonderful displays you see each month, has put together an eye-catching exhibit about BBW (see photos, below). Stop by and take a look at some of the titles that have been banned in the past (you'll be surprised!), answer fun trivia questions, and give us your opinion about book banning. Feel free to take a seat and stay a while, even though the exhibit signs read "Banned" and "Forbidden." Celebrate your freedom to read any title you choose by crossing into the "Banned Book Zone"!
