CAUTION: Banned Books on Display!


Banned Books Week (Sept. 25-Oct. 1) is an annual event celebrating our freedom to read without censorship. This week, we’ll be emphasizing the need for free and open access of information and commemorating several works, including Gone with the Wind, Slaughterhouse-Five, To Kill a Mockingbird, and even the Harry Potter series, that have been banned in the U.S.

Thanks to the hard work of library staff, instructors, students, and community members, many of these works and others on display on the first floor of the Burritt Library have remained accessible to the public and inspired critical dialogue on what it means to be human.

Any of the books featured in the Banned Books Week display can be borrowed! If you would like to borrow any of the books in the display case, please see the staff member at the Circulation Desk for assistance.

For more information about Banned Books Week as well as lists of banned and challenged books throughout history, please visit the American Library Association Banned Books Week webpage at
