Caution! Banned Books

banned0721.jpgIn recognition of Banned Books Week, we have put up this display at the Downtown Campus Library. These books have not been banned at the JSRCC libraries. Celebrate your freedom to read by checking one out from the library.

Here is a list of the books that are in the display. They will be available for checkout in January. In the meantime, many of them can be found at the Parham Campus Library.

Here are some websites that give reasons for titles being challenged or banned.
