Banned Books Readathon at Springfield City Library

September 23 - September 29

Free

We’re doing it again! Due to last year’s response, Banned Books Week this year will again include our all-ages Readathon! Can you read three banned books of your choice in a week? Sign up for our challenge and tell us what you plan on reading. For each book you finish, you get one entry into a raffle to win some cool prizes! Challenge yourself and bone up on classics old and new. Like Isaac Asimov said, “If a book is worth banning, it’s worth reading!” Ages 8-Adult, register at a service desk starting Sept 15th.
