Help Rockingham Library celebrate the freedom to read during Banned Books Week (September 22-28) by selecting  a challenged or banned book from the Rockingham Library’s main floor display to take home to read.

Or better yet, sign up to read one in the front window of Village Square Book Sellers. Call the Library (802-463-4270) or email programming@rockinghamlibrary.org by Wednesday, September 18th to sign up to read in the huge “See Live Humans Read Banned/Challenged Books” window display at Village Square Book Sellers.

This annual event spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools.  Each year, the American Library Association (ALA) Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from libraries shelves and from classrooms. The OIF tracked 347 challenges to library, school, and university materials and services. Overall, 483 books were challenged or banned in 2018.
