Catcher in the Rye . . . Of Mice and Men . . . Harry Potter . . . What’s your favorite book? Chances are good that someone has tried to ban it. . Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. TRPL Celebrated YOUR freedom to read during Banned Books Week, on Wednesday, October 3, at Three Rivers Library.
Three Rivers teens from the area and from Three Rivers Area Mentoring (TRAM) came out to participate in the Virtual Read-Out by creating videos proclaiming the virtues of the freedom to read that will be featured below, the Library Facebook page, and the dedicated BBW You Tube channel. Teens chose a short passage from their favorite banned book and showed up at the virtual read-out.
Check out some of these amazing videos by both teens and Three Rivers community members!
