Celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week

Stop at the Information Desk to enter a daily drawing for a banned or challenged book.

Join Belk Library as we observe Banned Books Week, September 28-October 3. You'll get to see some of the books that have been frequently banned or challenged in schools and libraries across the country. While you’re in the library, stop at the Information Desk to enter the daily drawing for a banned or challenged book.

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. For more information about Banned Books Week, visit the American Library Association.
