Teens and Banned Books

Please stop in the library and check out our new "Banned Books Display" brought to you by Waterford's own Teen Advisory Board.  Seven teens made the display out of cheesecloth, handcuffs, keys, eye patches, gas masks, and ravens (you'll have to see it to believe it)!  And yes (!) they actually go along well together!

September is Banned Books Month and the group wanted to highlight the importance of free speech and the ability to read by choice, not force.  As librarians, we celebrate the patrons' ability to have a wide-selection of books to choose from, and serve as gatekeepers to the knowledge and unique perspectives only books are at times able to bring.  Stop in!  Pick up a book! And.....Enter if you DARE!!!!
