On Display in the Library: Banned and Censored Graphic Novels


In anticipation of Banned Books Week, many of the library displays are focusing on materials that have been challenged, censored or outright banned, highlighting the power and importance of having the freedom to engage with these materials. The display case on the second floor highlights graphic novels that have been challenged in schools and libraries in the recent past. Also highlighted are efforts undertaken by students, teachers and librarians to fight back against censorship. If you're interested in learning more, take a look at the displays and stay tuned ('tooned?) for more information on our Banned Books Week events!
