September 22-28 is Banned Books Week at libraries around the country. Librarians celebrate this important week by shining a light on how censorship mars the very core of the First Amendment by taking away another person’s right to speak freely. This year’s theme, “Keep the Light On” is a perfect way to express how censorship at any level leaves us all in the dark. Stop by the Powell Branch Library to see your librarians dressed up as their favorite banned books throughout the week.
