It's Banned Books Week. Hagerstown Jefferson Township Library hasn't made a big deal of it this year. It's not because we don't think it's important. It's because we've been working super hard on a bunch of things, and so we've been pretty chill about this one. That said, Banned Books Week is a big deal. Maybe you think that books don't get removed from shelves in libraries because of content anymore. Maybe you think that outright book burnings and the like are a thing of the past. Here, in America, that's true in a general sense. There are still challenges made against certain books in certain places, but there are also very diligent librarians and other intellectual freedom advocates who are pushing against those who would think for us. Banned Books Week is about celebrating and supporting those people and actions that preserve our ability to decide for ourselves and our children what is appropriate for us and them. So, check out www.ala.org/bbooks/bannedbooksweek and www.bannedbooksweek.org/ and then, if you want to, check out these books from your local library. ... See MoreSee Less
