Banned Books Week

Free People Read Freely is the theme for Banned Books Week, Sept. 23 - 30, 2006. Visit the Anderson Library at Olney Central College to see the book display. Read articles at the American Library Association web site at http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/bannedbooksweek/bannedbooksweek.htm

Consider this quotation from a former U.S. Supreme Court Justice:

"Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us."—Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas."

View the list of the most challenged books in the 21st Century at http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/bannedbooksweek/bbwlinks/topten2000to2005.htm

Better yet, keep reading what you like to read.
