Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week

September 24-30, 2017

Celebrate your freedom to read @ IPL!
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the  free and open access to information. With books that have been challenged or banned, there have been
attempts to remove those from a curriculum or library,
restricting access for others. As such, they are a threat to freedom of speech and choice. 

Take a look at the Banned Books display across from the circulation desk and enter our contest to win a canvas tote!

Book Discussion

Tuesday, September 26 @ 6:30 pm

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake will be the topic of the book discussion this month.

Filled with stunning parallels to today, The Postmistress is a sweeping novel about what happens to love during wartime. Weaving together the stories of three very
different women loosely tied to each other, Blake takes readers back and forth between small town America and
war-torn Europe in 1940.

All are welcome. Click here for more information.
