I visited my local library this past weekend and saw these displays of books that were saved from being banned. I was blown away because I’d read almost every book displayed. (The Bible, The Color Purple, Fahrenheit 451, Harry Potter, Where the Sidewalk Ends, Huckleberry Finn, The Giving Tree, The Indian in the Cupboard, Harriet the Spy and more) See my Flickr album here.
Please, please support your local library! Remember intellectual freedom is about the right to learn. “BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them.” This is the basis of freedom of speech and the First Amendment. Please don’t take it for granted. When we take things for granted…..they disappear. Speak out!
