The library is celebrating Banned Books Week, Sept. 21-27, 2014, with a display of books topping the list of those that have been banned or challenged in the United States. We’re also asking library visitors to check off books they’ve read on our whiteboard display by the front of the library. Of course, not all banned or challenged books could be represented, so we also included lists of the top banned and challenged books in the last decade (2000-2009), and also classic books that have been banned or challenged. Stop by and take a look, maybe your favorite book has been challenged. Who knows!
From the American Library Association:
CHICAGO — It may surprise some to find out there are hundreds of reported attempts to ban books every year in the United States. It may be even more astounding for them to hear that since 1990, the American Library Association’s (ALA) Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) has received reports of more than 18,000 attempts to remove materials in schools and libraries for content deemed by some as inappropriate, controversial or even dangerous.
Banned Books Week, Sept. 21 – 27, 2014, reminds Americans about the importance of preventing censorship and ensuring everyone’s freedom to read any book they choose. According to ALA’s OIF, for every banned book reported, there are many more that are not.
This year’s Banned Books Week is spotlighting graphic novels because, despite their literary merit and popularity as a format, they are often subject to censorship. Graphic novels continually show up on the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom’s Top 10 List of Most Frequently Challenged Books. The most current list for 2013 includes two graphic novels: Dav Pilkey’s “Captain Underpants” series at the top spot and Jeff Smith’s series “Bone” at #10.
“Our most basic freedom in a democratic society is our first amendment right of the freedom to read,” said ALA President Courtney Young. “Banned Books Week is an opportunity for all of us – community residents, librarians, authors and educators – to stand together protecting this fundamental right for everyone and for future generations. We can never take this precious right for granted.”
To commemorate the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America in 1787 Constitution Day is observed September 17. In accordance with section 111 of Division J of Public Law 108-447 we celebrate!
For a free pocket size publication “The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America” visit the Health Sciences Library on September 17th!
“The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the states, it is the source of all government powers, and also provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens”.
