Banned Books Week starts today!

This week is the 28th edition of National Banned Books Week. The USF Polytechnic Library is celebrating in many ways:

  • a display of challenged or banned books from our collections
  • quotes on freedom of expression, censorship and the freedom to read
  • our Read Out event, Tuesday September 29th, from 11:15AM to 1PM and 4:15PM to 6PM. Members of the campus community will be reading from banned or challenged books in 15-minutes increments on the patio outside the Library (LTB 1115)
  • drawing of two prizes during the Read Out event

Here are some interesting sites about Banned Books Week or the issues behind it:

Come and celebrate your freedom to read with us!
