Celebrate banned books!

Our annual Banned Books Week Open House will be held on Monday, September 24, from 11 to 1 p.m. on the library’s first floor. Stop by anytime during this free and informal event to celebrate Banned Books Week!

The event will feature:

    • A display of books from the Kathryn A. Martin Library and Duluth Public Library collections that have been frequently banned or challenged in other schools or libraries
    • Craft projects, including button making and coloring
    • Reading recommendations from your librarians
    • Cookies and bars!

This event, co-sponsored by the Duluth Public Library, is in celebration of Banned Books Week, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.

According to the American Library Association, “Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community—librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types—in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.”
