Banned Books Week 2020

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read. The books recognized each year have all been targeted for removal or restriction in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.

We've compiled a list below of some of our librarians' favorite banned books. Is one of your favorites included? Maybe you'll find something to add to your To Read pile! 

Self-Checks Now Available

Looking for a way to maintain social distancing while checking out items? Or a way to skip the line? You’ll love our new self-checks - available now!

Self-checks will be available in the check out area at our Central Library, as well as in the Youth and Reference areas, and at our branches. And they are exactly what they sound like: an easy way for you to check out items yourself.
