Event Details

Banned Books Week is a celebration of the freedom to access ideas, a fundamental right that belongs to everyone and a right over which no one person or small group of people should hold sway.

What does it mean when books are challenged or banned?

Challenge – Attempt to remove or restrict materials or services based on content.

Ban- Removal of materials or cancellation of services based on content.

We’re challenging back! The Overstreet Memorial Library will proudly display challenged books and banned books all week long! Movies are banned too, watch feature films with us that have been on banned lists. You won’t believe what some of the movies are!
