Librarians Unite for Banned and Challenged Books Week!

From September 25-October 1st Libraries around the world observe Banned Books Week. You can thank Librarians for stopping many challenged books from ever becoming banned! During this week we emphasize the importance of books that have been baned and the cultural significance of this activity. Deck your halls with banned and challenged books. A great activity for middle school would be a reading group focusing on a banned book of their choice and a discussion with refreshments. The librarian can discuss why do the children think that the book was banned and the importance of intellectual freedom.
