Interested persons are asked to join the Brainerd Public Library this week to celebrate the right to read during Banned Books Week.
Since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to, or view. Classic books such as “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “The Catcher in the Rye” and “Little House on the Prairie” have all been challenged or banned in libraries across the United States.
Through Saturday, the library will have displays, activities and resources available. Interested persons may take their “mug shot” with their favorite banned book, find out more about classic and contemporary banned books and play trivia to win fun prizes.
