Happy Banned Books week, wait, WHAT?! MALARKEY!!! This week (September 30th through October 6st) the PRHS Library celebrates the 30th Anniversary of  Banned Books Week by relishing in our freedom to read literature that has been banned or challenged in various schools and libraries around the world! So stop by and bask in your  intellectual freedom and complete, unrestricted access by checking out a banned book this week..it’s one of your essential First Amendment rights!

Here are just few banned books that we have in our amazing  library that other libraries and schools have given the big red stamp of un-approval!

The Harry Potter Series…banned in countless schools for containing witchcraft and promoting lying, cheating and stealing…the series is also at the top of the Most Frequently Challenged Books of the Decade List, blimey!!!

The Gossip Girl Series…banned for offensive language and for being unsuited for a teenage age group.

F VON

The Lorax…banned in Laytonville, California School District on grounds that this book criminalizes the forestry industry.

F SEU

To Kill a Mockingbird…banned due to its racist implications toward the government and profanity.
