Banned Books Week 2022

 

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!!!! Although not all winners have responded with their school choices, so far we have been able to hand out book bundles and gift cards to the librarians at Orchard Elementary, Senior High, Castle Rock Middle School, Laurel Middle School, Central Heights Elementary, and Riverside Middle School. We appreciate everything these people do to inspire a love of reading (and critical thinking!) in the young people of our community.

To celebrate Banned Books Week this year, a few member-owners are sponsoring a series of giveaways to make sure as many challenged books as possible make their way out into the community. Anyone who makes a purchase (either online or in-store) September 18-24 will be entered into a drawing for the grand prize (a bag of banned books), and each day there will be drawings for smaller prizes. In addition, each winner will have the opportunity to designate a local school library of their choice to receive a gift certificate and a bundle of banned books. Stay tuned via this website and social media for other ways to participate as well!

(Anyone who would like to donate to the banned books drawings/school library gift cards can do so at the following link...be sure to put "Banned Books Giveaway" in the comments section: https://thishouseofbooks.indielite.org/donation.)
