Thank you to everyone who participated in the Banned Books survey during the week of September 21-28, 2014.  We have 102 total respondents who checked off all the banned or challenged books that they have read (so far!).  One person even had a write-in candidate-- The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold.  

Banned Book Week at SMC

Come visit the Library lobby area to see a display of banned or challenged books.  They are wrapped in plain paper with quotes from reviews on the outside to show why they were banned or challenged.  You are encouraged to handle the books!  There is also a survey you can complete to show how many titles you have read (so far!).  Results will be posted on the Library's social media pages.

Come one come all!   Officially Banned Book Week is from September 21st through September 28th, and the exhibit will last at least that long.

Pardon our dust!
