Exercise your Freedom to Read

The SCC Library is celebrating banned and challenged books throughout October with an exhibit on the second floor.

  • A challenge is an attempt to remove material from the library in order to restrict the access others have to those materials.
  • Banning is the actual removal of materials from the library.

Which books were challenged most often in 2007?  Come to the second floor of the library and find out.  Send your students.  Borrow a few of our banned and challenged books and judge for yourself. You can also visit the American Library Association’s page on Banned Books Week to investigate the issues further.
