Library celebrates 30th annual Banned Books Week


The Pacific University Libraries are celebrating Banned Books Week, the annual celebration of Intellectual Freedom, Sept. 30-  Oct. 6.


The Pacific University Libraries are celebrating the 30th annual Banned Books Week. Stop by the Forest Grove campus to see books that have been challenged across the U.S. and learn more about why books are challenged, and Intellectual Freedom. The display is located on the second floor, across from the elevator.

Banned Books Week is the annual celebration of the freedom to read. Started in 1982 by the American Library Association and others, Banned Books Week highlights titles that are challenged each year, across the United States, in order to bring attention to the issue of censorship in our modern society.
