Banned Books Week (September 24-30)

Library Staff:  What would you do if I told you that you could not read your favorite book because it is banned?

Student:  I will fight you!

This week is Banned Books Week!  Each year, libraries across the country celebrate Banned Books Week to promote awareness on our freedom to read which is protected by the 1st Amendment of our U.S. Constitution.

The circulation staff created book displays and a Library Learning Series:  Banned Books session (hosted by Natalie Wahl, Instruction Librarian) was held in the Kapunawai last week.

Books selected for the displays were labeled with quotes of reasons why the books were challenged.  A few passersby who briefly glanced at the displays were compelled to walk to the circulation counter to ask why their favorite books were banned.  The staff explained that the books were not banned and asked, “what if they were?”.  It was amazing to hear their passionate responses!

Come by and check out our displays!  The circulation desk staff will be prepared for any comments and discussions!

Student Wish List for the Library

Student Library Wish List

Last week, the circulation staff put out an interactive white board asking patrons to write suggestions to improve the library.  We have received some interesting–but useful–suggestions!  Currently, the top 3 needs are:

  1. More study spaces/tables
  2. More computers
  3. More food options

We appreciate the patrons’ enthusiasm in participating and will consider their suggestions.  The board is still on display waiting to be filled with more comments!
