Mes dos libros perigosos = Dangerous Books Month

September 11 - October 3

Banned Book Week was created to show people the importance of reading and writing freedom. We are glad to join this great initiative for the third time.

Our doors are open again to anyone who wants to take a look at the displays of banned and challenged books we have prepared for this month: comics, young adults novels and adults books. Of course you should read them now!

We had also prepared a reading challenge with some books that you had to read at school (or still have) and you didn’t know they were banned. Or did you? You’ll find it on the loan desk zones and online. There’s also a QR available for a mor confortable access.

There are some posters too around the young adults and comic section to show you more about banned books through the history.

We are waiting for you!
