Between September 21 and September 27, 2014 the Library will be celebrating Banned Books Week.
Every year for Banned Book Week, the American Library Association (ALA) promotes the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one’s opinions even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular. The ALA’s goal with Banned Book Week is to stress the importance of ensuring the availability of all viewpoints to all who wish to read them.
For the entire week, the Library will be contributing to the #BannedBooksWeek hashtag on Twitter. Also, be on the lookout for Banned Books Week materials in various Brown Library locations. If you spot something related to Banned Books Week take a photo and share on Instagram using the hashtag: #BannedBooksWeek.
