Banned Books Week

The du-Pont Ball Library is proud to support Banned & Challenged Books Week (September 25 – October 1, 2016). This is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.  Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — organizations and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. The du-Pont Ball Library will have a display of books that have been deemed “controversial” and we hope you will take the time to browse through the selection we offer, as well as check any out to read for yourself. We look forward to celebrating freedom of speech as expressed in the books that have been challenged over the years.
