What's Happening at the NEIU Libraries?

Banned Books Week

by Robin Harris on 2021-09-27T16:46:00-05:00 | Comments

Banned Books Week (September 26-October 2) was founded in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. It brings together the entire book community in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas.
In honor of Banned Books Week, Jonathan Gronli moderated a discussion on intellectual freedom between Librarians Edward Remus and Mary Thill, and Dean of Libraries Steven Harris. Through the discussion, they cover experiences with book challenges, their thoughts on the library's role in preserving intellectual freedom and fostering information literacy and open discussion.
