Banned Books Week is Sept. 30 to Oct. 6. Intellectual freedom – the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular – provides the foundation for Banned Books Week.
This week stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them. Come see the Syracuse Public Library’s display of books that have been popular targets for banishment in the past, and find out why each of them was targeted. Exercise your right to intellectual freedom – read a banned book this week!
