Program Description

Event Details

Kick off Banned Books Week with a Community Read-In!

Library staff and community guests will host a public storytime and read aloud from children's books that have been banned or challenged in the last decade.

Adults, teens, and older kids are welcome to just bring a blanket or lawn chair and read together on the lawn!

We'll also:

  • Write postcards to support authors of challenged books;
  • Peruse frequently challenged books for all ages; and
  • Hand out Banned Books Week stickers, buttons, and bookmarks!

Rain or shine! We'll be outdoors on the lawn if the weather's nice, and inside the Library's Ottinger Room if it's not.
