Celebrate your right to choose what you read during Banned Books Week, September 25 – October 1, 2016 at Escondido Public Library. Banned Books Week is an annual national awareness campaign celebrating the freedom to read, and drawing attention to banned and challenged books, such as Catcher in the Rye, Harry Potter, and The Bible. During Banned Books Week the Library promotes the availability of works that represent a broad spectrum of viewpoints, even those that might be unorthodox or unpopular, to all who wish to read them, and the need to keep material publicly available so that people can develop their own conclusions and opinions.
Visit the library and select a book of your choice, or one from a Banned Books Week display. Visit library.escondido.org/banned to take part in the celebration of one of the greatest driving forces in this country – the First Amendment.
Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia St., Escondido.
