New City Champions --- Battle of the Books

In a contest between 10 libraries, our teens came in second place in The Battle of the Books at the beautiful new Warwick Library on Sunday, September 12.

THOUGHT POLICE

America's freedoms-- of speech and religion, particularly-- have been very much in the news lately.  At the end of September, libraries across the country will be putting a spotlight on the First Amendment by observing Banned Books Week.  In light of this month's events, I thought this would be a perfect time to look at the subject of censorship in speculative fiction.
