Don't forget to visit our Banned Books Week exhibit on the first floor of Randall.


From the American Library Association: 

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The Banned Books Read-In is sponsored by The UNCW English Department and Randall Library.
