Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out

Celebrate your Freedom to Read during Banned Books Week! This year BBW is Sept. 27 - Oct. 3. Public libraries support access to information and your freedom to read.

Since the inception of Banned Books Week in 1982, libraries and bookstores throughout the country have staged local read-outs—a continuous reading of banned/challenged books—as part of their activities. For the third year, PPLD is participating and we hope you will help us.

Virtual Read-Out
Wed., Sept. 23, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
East Teen Center at the East Library
Readers of All Ages Welcome!

During the Virtual Read-Out, readers of all ages (including you!) will be recorded for up to 3 minutes talking about the book that you choose! A form is provided below to help you write your piece.

Below is a list of frequently banned or challenged books.

Take a look at these quick, great videos of local teens and adults talking about some of their favorite banned or challenged books.
