There's a mystery in the Children's Department...

     Psst...there's some books in the Children's Department that some people may not want you to see.  They're covered completely in brown paper.  If you'd like to solve this mystery, stop by our  Banned Books display and find out what's going on out there. 

 Elizabeth Hunt, a Children's librarian, does a display each year in observance of Banned Books Week (this year it's September 22-28).  The display is to inform parents, children and other adults about books that have been banned or challenged in libraries around the country.  The books are wrapped in brown paper, but there's a red flap you can pull up to find out about the book and the story behind the challenge or banning.
