Fight the Power!

It may have happened to a book you love.  Harry Potter.  Where the Wild Things Are.  To Kill a Mockingbird.  The Fault in Our Stars.  Those are just a few of the many titles that people have fought to ban over the last years and decades.  Even in 2015, communities in the U.S. sometimes still fight to remove books from the shelves because they see their content as dangerous, inappropriate, or immoral.

Hence, the glory of Banned Books Week, a week-long, national campaign to celebrate the freedom to read! Come to the library to get your mugshot taken for a reading a banned book and fight the power!

Last but not least, find out "how scandalous your reading history is," you rebel!
