September 21-27 Is Banned Books Week!

The Harnish Law Library is celebrating Banned Books Week from September 21-27! Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and to express ideas.  The American Library Association estimates that since 1982, the year Banned Books Week was launched, more than 11,300 books have been challenged in American schools, bookstores, and libraries. 

Previously banned or challenged books have included such classics and popular works as The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald; The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins; and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

This week, stop by the Law Library to:

  • Check out our display of previously banned books at the Public Services Desk;
  • Pick up a Banned Books Week bookmark; and
  • Pick up themed goodie bags during Thursday’s Happy Hour from 3:30-4:30!
