Theme Exhibit: This display celebrates Banned Books Week (Sept. 25−Oct. 2) and Freedom of Speech Week (Oct. 18-24), which is a collaborative effort with the speech communication department. It features well-known books that have been challenged or banned from libraries and schools over the centuries, along with books that discuss free speech and the First Amendment to the Constitution.
Constitution Day was Sept. 17. A research guide is featured on the library’s website and includes resources that deal with various aspects of the U. S. Constitution and the First Amendment, Freedom of Speech and Banned Books/censorship.
