Banned Books Readathon

October 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT

Free

Commemorate Banned Books Week (October 1–7) with Prince Memorial Library’s first Banned Books Readathon! Throughout the day, community members will be reading from a selection of banned or frequently challenged picture books and middle-grade books chosen by PML librarians. Drop in to listen. Leave when you need to. It’s a casual, and, we hope, entertaining good time. We’ll even have the popcorn machine and slushy machine in full swing.
