Last day of #bannedbooksweek. Here is my #bannedbooksselfie. Librarians do more than shush people! 😝 they fight censorship and work to ensure access to materials for everyone. Read a banned book and hug a librarian! #perksofbeingawallflower ❤️

Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. — Alfred Whitney Griswald

Banned Books Mugshots: Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska), Janie Crawford (Their Eyes Were Watching God), Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye), Harry Potter (Harry Potter), and Hester Prynne (The Scarlet Letter).

Banned Books Week is September 22 - 28! Visit Banned Books Week’s site or the American Library Association’s banned books page for more information!

I think these are my favorite Banned Books Week ads.
