Banned Books Week is a celebration of our freedom to access information, particularly books, free from the constraints of censorship. What better way to mark the occasion than by breaking some books??
Join us for an evening of crafty destruction as we cut, tear, fold, glue, and mark up pages of books that have been discarded from the library's collection. We will have instructions for folded book art, decoupage/paper-mâché, blackout poetry, and book page painting available. Participants will also learn about the practice of challenging and banning books, how it impacts schools and libraries, and what they can do to support their freedom to read.
This activity is designed for patrons ages 12 and up. Participants' creations can be added to our Banned Books Week display (September 22-28) for pick-up later or taken home the day of the event.
