Read banned books next week

6 September 1984


The author of this article makes a point to mention that Corvallis-Benton County Public Library will be observing Banned Book Week which begins on September 8. The article mentions that the world seems to be full of people who want to tell others what they can and cannot read. The author says that the library will be showing a video titled “An Evening of Forbidden Books” which will feature readings by authors of banned books. There will be about 400 books that have been targeted that will be on display. The article ends by saying that Banned Books Week is a valuable observance because there is more at stake in the battle of censorship than just the right to read.
