Banned Books Week

Posted by isulib on September 26, 2011

Banned Books Week LibGuide Available

We now have a Banned Books Week LibGuide at http://libguides.indstate.edu/BannedBooksWeek – note: several classes will be looking for a banned book (mostly Linda Maule’s classes).*

ALA banned books bookmarks have been localized with stickers and will be given to everyone who checks out a book this week. The 1st floor display area has 2 cases devoted to Banned Books Week.

Several classes will be meeting on Thursday, 11am-12:15 in the Events Area to discuss censorship and intellectual freedom; Library people are invited to attend.

*The Fall Read has been The Freedom Writers. Students have been asked to read an article which discusses the attempt to fire a Indiana high school teacher who assigned the Freedom Writer’s Diary  to her 11th grade class.
