Banned Book Week.......

September 25th marks the start of “Banned Book Week” In support of the right to choose books freely for ourselves, the ALA and The South Carolina State Library are sponsoring Banned Books Week September 25 - October 2, an annual celebration of our right to access books without censorship. This year's observance commemorates the most basic freedom in a democratic society-the freedom to read freely-and encourages us not to take this freedom for granted.

Since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to, or view. Many libraries will celebrate the freedom to read by participating in special events, exhibits, and read-outs that showcase books that have been banned or threatened.

Great new event!

The library, in partnership with the Lee County Chamber of Commerce, is planning a "Trunk a Treat" program for Saturday October 23, 2010 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Grammar School Park.

"What's a Trunk a Treat," you ask? Well, instead of handing out your candy at your house, you put your treats in the trunk of you car and the youngsters come around to get their candy.

You can also decorate your car....and we will be having a judging contest. Stay tuned for more information about this program. We are planning lots of activities that day. So, mark your calendar for October 23rd - we'll look for you!
