Jackson County Public Library observes twenty-ninth annual Banned Books Week

Written by 

The twenty-ninth Banned Books Week Sept. 25 through Oct. 2 celebrates not only the freedom to choose what to read but also the freedom to select from a full array of possibilities.

This year’s theme is “Think for Yourself and Let Others Do the Same.” The Jackson County Public Library will be displaying books that have been challenged, restricted, removed or banned and providing information on who objected to them and their reasoning.  

“The Jackson County Public Library does not condone or participate in censorship. We believe in S. R. Ranganathan’s philosophy: ‘For every reader there is a book and for every book there is a reader,’” said Dottie Brunette, Jackson County Librarian.
