Did you know there are books that used to be banned from the library and people were not allowed to read them?  Stories like Harry Potter, Tom Sawyer, and To Kill a Mockingbird were once banned from schools due to complaints about their content.

However,  our library has books that were once banned but that you can now read. In fact, there is a nationwide celebration of banned books this week. Mrs. Truss, our librarian is holding a contest for Banned Books Week.  It is an essay contest which started on September, 27.  In order to win,  you would read a banned book and write a short essay about what your opinion was on it. Students and teachers are eligible to enter.

The slip to enter the contest is on the left side of the dpor to the library. When you turn in your essay to Mrs.Truss she will enter you into the drawing contest. If you need any more info on this contest you can talk to your ELA teacher or come down to the library and ask Mrs.Truss any questions you have on it. Make sure to swing by the library and pick up your enter slip.
