What do the books The Great Gatsby, Gone With the Wind,
and The Lord of the Rings have in common?
Next week, libraries across the nation will be observing the 30th Anniversary of National Banned Book Week (September 30th - October 6th, 2012). Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the value of free and open access to information. Bringing together the entire book community – librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types – in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular, Banned Book Week focuses on the efforts made across the country to remove or restrict access to books, and draws national attention to the harms of censorship.

Have An Interest for Pinterest?

    Do you have an interest for
"I saw that on Pinterest!"
"I found this amazing craft idea on Pinterest the other day!"
"Oh, I got this recipe from Pinterest!"

Pinterest. Pinterest. Pinterest. You keep hearing about it from your friends, your family, your coworkers, maybe even your kids and grandkids, but you have no idea what it is. It sounds fun, but you're not quite sure how to get started or if it's even something for you.
This month the library will be hosting two FREE Pinterest workshops. You'll learn all of the basics, including how to sign-up for an account, search for images, pin and repin images, as well as some neat tricks and tips that Pinterest has to offer.
