banned books weekIt might surprise you which books have been banned or censored in the past. Join the Idaho Falls Public Library during Banned Books Week (Sep 26 to Oct 2) to learn more about issues surrounding censorship.

Kids, stop by our children’s desk to pick up a Banned Books Bingo card, then search for images of banned books hanging throughout the library. When you find enough images to get a bingo, take your card back to the children’s desk to be entered to win a $25 gift card to a local book store.

Adults and teens, if you check out a banned book from our third-floor display, you’ll find a slip inside that you can return to the third-floor desk to be entered into the same drawing.
