People often ask us about the books included in our display. The lists below are an annual collection of reports of book banning and attempted book banning from around the country as collected by the American Library Association (ALA). We draw our display books from these annual lists and all time most banned lists. This year Banned Books Week is September 21−27, 2014, please stop by either library branch and check out our displays.
