Want another chance to win some Library swag? Keep an eye open for another drawing during Banned Books Week.

Let Freedom Read, 2023 Banned Books WeekOctober 1-7 is Banned Books Week. With the increase in challenges to libraries to limit access to reading materials, we at the Durham Tech Library feel its more important than ever to mindfully reflect on the power that stories have to empower and educate.

Banned Books Week highlights this issue in libraries and society and encourages people to consider the implications of book bans in society.

While we strongly believe that parents and individuals have the right to choose to read or not read certain texts, we do not support bans that are disproportionately focused on marginalized experiences.
