Library Newsletter - September 2021

banned books simple

Sept 26 – Oct 2 is Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week celebrates our freedom to read what we choose and we celebrate it during the last week of September every year. Activities during the week highlight the value of having free and open access to information as well as the attempts to hinder that access. 

For more information, read our Banned Books Week 2021 Libguide and follow us on Instagram or Twitter @cloviscclibrary.


If you need research or reference help, our librarians are ready to assist you. One of our CCC librarians will be running the 24/7 chat service during regular library hours. After hours, your questions will be answered by other librarians who can access CCC resources
