In celebration of Banned Books Week (Monday, September 26th through Friday, September 30th), we will be doing a daily e-mailing of a banned book title, the reason why it was banned and an excerpt from the title itself, as well as the Library’s information on where to find that filthy, filthy book!

If you wish to sign up for our “A Banned Book A Day…” emails, please visit http://www.occc.edu/library/bannedbooks.html

Once you submit your information, an email will be sent to your address to confirm its authenticity. You MUST click on the link in the email to ensure delivery of future emails.

Don’t delay or miss out on having a “BANNED” email 🙂

Any questions? Just ask!

One Response to A Banned Book A Day Keeps the Censors Away!

    No book has been banned in the USA for about half a century. Fanny Hill got that honor a long time ago. Challenged books in schools that are removed is different from banning. Setting aside that Banned Books Week is propaganda, the creator of BBW said:

    “On rare occasion, we have situations where a piece of material is not what it appears to be on the surface and the material is totally inappropriate for a school library. In that case, yes, it is appropriate to remove materials. If it doesn’t fit your material selection policy, get it out of there.”
