Be sure to visit our latest lobby display, which highlights Banned Books Week, September 27-October 4, 2008.

When you hear the term "banned books," you probably think of contemporary books containing materials thought to be inappropriate by some members of the public. But books have been banned all over the world for many centuries and for many reasons. Books that have been banned include English translations of the Bible, The Diary of Anne Frank, Huckleberry Finn, and To Kill A Mockingbird. You might be surprised by some of the titles we have on display.
