This Week at the Law Library …

Banned Books Week

The Law Library is celebrating your right to read!

According to the American Library Association, “Banned Books Week was launched in the 1980s, a time of increased challenges, organized protests, and the Island Trees School District v. Pico (1982) Supreme Court case, which ruled that school officials can’t ban books in libraries simply because of their content.”

Stop by our display on banned books and learn about the top 11 banned books in 2018, cases involving banned books, who challenges books, and why books are challenged.
