As part of Banned Books Week, we’ve invited community guests to read excerpts from favorite children’s books that have recently been banned or challenged to “see what all the fuss is about.” All ages are welcome.
Banned Books Week is an annual, national celebration of your freedom to read, held September 18 – 24 this year. The theme of this year’s event is “Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us.” Learn more about Banned Books week on our website at chapelhillpubliclibrary.org/banned-books.
Join us on the library lawn for an educational celebration of banned and challenged books. There will be games and activities relating to banned books with fun prizes and more.
Listen to banned children’s books, create your own blackout poem, and learn about how the library bill of rights stands in opposition to censorship of books and other materials.
All ages event. Attendees are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets for the story portion of the program.
Program will be moved indoors to the children’s room if weather is poor.
