University City Public Library invites everyone to participate in a community-wide read-in on Monday, October 2 to kick off Banned Books Week. Join us between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. to learn about censorship across the country, pick up a participation button, and READ! This all-day event is free and open to all.
UCPL’s event is one of several read-in events held at libraries across the St. Louis metro area. Readers at these events can read whatever books they want, highlighting the American Library Association’s goal to “Let Freedom Read.” For more information on Banned Books Week and censorship across the country, visit www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks.
