Banned Books Week 2022
Date Posted: 8/24/2022
Every year, libraries across the country celebrate the freedom to read with Banned Books Week. This annual event spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools, and explores the harms of censorship.
This year we’re celebrating with interactive displays in every library during Banned Books Week (September 18-24). Stop by your library during that week to take your photo with one of our displays, and share why you celebrate the freedom to read. During that time you can pick up limited edition stickers, book marks, and book bags (while supplies last). You can also hear from local librarians about banned books in Central Oregon (September 22), and can explore some of our library staff members’ favorite books that have found their way onto the challenged books list at one time or another. Keep your eye on our Instagram and Facebook pages for more ways we’re celebrating the freedom to read during Banned Books Week 2022.
