Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

About a month ago I posted about how the librarians at the branch of the public library that I frequent periodically (Once a month? Hello, sweet power of deduction.) put together a collection of books based on a theme. See here.


Anyway, my saucy librarians are up to no dang good this time. You will not believe what I my eyes were subjected to when I was there on Saturday:


Banned books. BANNED BOOKS, PEOPLE! I was shocked. And, and, and . . . appalled. My delicate sensi . . . (ahem) . . . My delicate sensibil . . . (hrm) . . . My delicate . . .

Aw, who am I trying to kid? I checked out The Fan Club.

I thought it was going to be something like "Dotting the 'I': The History Of The Ohio State Marching Band" or something.

That's FANTASTIC! I wish my library would work out where the boundaries are and then push them.

That is awesome! I love your library!

Let me know if you liked The Fan Club. I looked it up online and might be interested.

That is such a good way to bring people into the library. Pushing the limits is amazing! Good for them.

I'm curious to know what else was on that cart...

I'm glad your blog isn't actually dead!

Also, are my eyes playing tricks on me or is the couch in your header redder than it used to be?

I bet the Librarian was like "F This!" and her assistand was like "Yeah! F That! and then she was like "EFFing right!" and then they high fived.

I want to come spend the day in your library.

Banned Books week is an annual activity of the American Library Association. I'm surprised it took so long for your library to start celebtating!

At first when I saw the picture I was thinking, "a propaganda campaign!" where on the front side we have "Have you read these banned books?" and once you turn it over it reads, "We know where you live!" But I'm glad to be wrong and see that your library believes in free thinking.

Awesome stuff, we don't have anything like that over here.

Would be an interesting week if we did. Might also improve the use of libraries, even if it is just for a week.

lol, love it :0)

Mary @The Sweet Bookshelf said...

It is Banned Books Week, an annual event from the ALA!! Get the word out and enjoy our right to read! Down with censorship!

See me. Hear me. said...

Books should no longer be banned, because everyone should be allowed to discuss their opinions.

It must have been some sort of national theme because the library at the local community college here in Oklahoma City did a similar display at the same time.

The Whale said...

When my children were much younger, I'd specifically choose books from the banned books list to give to them.

Some of them were pretty good. One of my favorites was The Giver.

Sincerely
