Read Out for Banned Books Week

As you know we've been celebrating Banned Books Week at the Library all week long with programs, author visits, and by reading banned and challenged books.  We're also hosting a Banned Books Read Out.  People from the community will be reading from the top 30 banned books of the last decade.  They'll be reading from books like To Kill A Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye, ttyl and Harry Potter.
