Banned Books Week

Posted by lclemons on

Banned Books Week (September 18 – 24, 2022) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools.

Books unite us. Books encourage boundless exploration and allow readers to spread their wings.
Stories give flight to new ideas and perspectives.
Reading-especially books that set us free-expands our worldview.

Censorship, on the other hand, locks away our freedom and divides us from humanity in our own cages.

This designated week brings together the entire book community-librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types-in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. The Crown Point Community Library celebrates Banned Books Week and its director, Julie Wendorf, is a strong advocate for the community and the freedom to read. Check out the top 10 banned books.

What’s Happening Inside The Library?

Posted by lclemons on

In October, the library will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Crown Point Library building location at 122 N. Main Street. This building has been well loved and needs some freshening up. Throughout September and October, public areas will be repainted and some flooring replaced. We are doing our best to limit the disruption to the public, however, some areas will be unavailable to patrons for a limited time as projects proceed. 

The areas currently being painted are:

  • 1st Floor Collection Area – Please ask staff for assistance retrieving materials that may not be accessible.
  • 2nd Floor Children’s Library – This department will be closed from September 19-October 8.
    • Programs will be held in the Library Meeting Rooms.
    • Visit staff and browse a limited collection in the first-floor reading area.

Thank you for your patience!
