Columbus Day

Turns out we had a whole section of Columbus Day books hiding in our holiday section… but we also have books on local tribes, tribes from other regions, and the history of what happened to those tribes after colonization. (And other explorers.)

Banned Books Week

Decided to do a few things different from your typical BBW display:

1) Focused on adult books instead of poaching from the Teen and Children section. They’re not the ones looking at the displays in the adult section anyway.

2) Explained why they’re banned, and where, and by whom. I think this is supremely important if we’re really going to open a dialog about it, instead of throwing titles up without any sort of context.

3) Chose mainly books banned by governments instead of continuing to slag on conservative parents in the South. Turns out they have nothing on 1930’s Australia.

And meanwhile at Library Numero Dos:
