MCPL to offer program on banned books, censorship

in Community

WAUSAU – Why are some books challenged as being inappropriate for students or the public in general? And what role do libraries play in providing access to this material? Get the answers to these questions and more during a special event from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 25 at the Marathon County Public Library’s Wausau Headquarters, 300 N. First St., Wausau.

Leah Langby, library development and youth services coordinator with Wisconsin’s Indianhead Federated Library System, will give a presentation on why some books are challenged or even banned for their content. There also will be a discussion on the importance of libraries – in K-12 schools, public libraries and university libraries – in serving the community and providing access to a wide range of material.

This event is free, with no registration required. For more information, call 715-261-7230 or visit https://mcpl.us/events/6668.
