The American Library Association (ALA) sponsors a national initiative each fall to fight censorship and support the freedom to read. Banned Books Week “brings together the entire book community to support the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular” (ALA, 2012).
This year, Speed Library joined the effort with events and contests for students, faculty, and staff to get involved. On Tuesday, September 27th, the library celebrated Banned Books Week with a selfie booth for attendees to take pictures while reading a banned book, a video display of faculty & staff reading banned books, as well as free cupcakes!
