It’s Banned Books Week!

We’ll be highlighting a banned or challenged book each day this week on our social media pages.

Today’s book, in honor of Scott F. Fitzgerald’s birthday yesterday, is “The Great Gatsby.” It was challenged in 1987 for “language and sexual references.” Visit the American Library Association’s website for more frequently challenged books: http://bit.ly/2jjRtel
