Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out
Stand up for your freedom to read! Taking advantage of access to ‘difficult’ books and resources is a key component of staying informed about pressing social & political issues. And it is only when we are well-informed that we can effectively act as agents of positive social change!
So check out the Smith Library Center’s Banned Books Week Read-Out videos on YouTube.
Six Southwestern students read selections from banned/challenged books in observance of the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week. Each day, starting Sunday, September 30, we will premiere a new short video. This project is part of the American Library Association’s efforts to fight censorship and promote our freedom to read.

The Library has a display of banned/challenged books up in the Periodicals Room. You can check out any of the books shown there. Can’t make it to the library? Visit our Banned Books Week Pinterest board! http://pinterest.com/smithlibraryctr/2012-banned-books-week-sept-30-oct-6/
