Did you know there were 513 challenges to books in libraries and schools across the U.S. in 2008 resulting in a myriad of items being removed from shelves? What worse, that's just the tip of the iceberg since 70-80% of challenges go unreported.
Support everyone's freedom to read what they want to by attending the Banned Books Reading sponsored by Briggs Library and Sigma Tau Delta. The event will take place on Tuesday, September 29 from 7:00 pm-8:00 pm in the library McGinnis Room. Individuals will be reading from banned or challenged books. Everyone is invited to participate or simply to listen. If you are interested in being a reader at the event or would like more information about the Banned Books Reading please contact Peter Bremer at 589-6173.
