Adrienne sez, “We’ve created a ‘live’ Banned Book Display at our library [Twin Hickory Public Library, Glen Allen, VA]. We have volunteer readers who sit in the display and read (silently) banned and challenged books. So far it’s gotten a lot of attention – we hear a lot of ‘Mom, what are those people doing in there?’ The best part has been hearing parents explain to their kids what the display is all about which is exactly what we wanted to happen!” Twin Hickory Public Library, Glen Allen, VA (Thanks, Adrienne!)

One thought on “LIVE Banned Books Display”

  1. Creative folks! Way to find an engaging method that has the patrons, (the best advocates), giving out the information on Banned Books week.

    I don’t get excited no matter how many Banned Books week bookmarks I see. This though, made me stop and think:

    Have I found a way to take a strong library idea and make it, more useful?

    Banned Books week has been around for awhile. Using fresh tactics to deliver meaningful information in a society overloaded by messages dooesn’t go unnoticed.
