Banned Books Week 2016-2017

Banned Books Week Overview

“Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community – librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types – in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular”.

Banned Books Week is September 25 – October 1, 2016. OCCC Library celebrates Banned Books Week during the entire month of September with a Banned Book display on the first floor of the Library. The display is stocked with banned and challenged titles and you can even see the reasoning behind the bans and challenges.

Visit us on Pinterest any time during the year to see several banned and challenged titles as well as celebrate the freedom to read.
