Kingwood Area Republican Women Promote Literacy

The Kingwood Area Republican Women and the Kingwood Branch Library have a joint mission. KARW is intensely interested in literacy and many of their projects each year promote literacy for all ages. It follows naturally that the library is the recipient for their generous donation of books.

Each year there is a theme for their literacy project and 2010 focuses on the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. With this in mind KARW donated 12 books on these subjects to the library on August 27. The community benefits each year through this wonderful project and we thank them for their generosity.
 

Banned Books Week

This week is Banned Books Week, when libraries and other institutions everywhere celebrate the freedom to read and reemphasize the importance of the First Amendment.  Here at our branch, we've set up a book display in the second-floor lobby with many of those titles that have been challenged at various times and places in the near and distant past.  Some of those you see may surprise you!  Also, if you're curious, take a look at the American Library Association's site here for an ample list of few of the most challenged classics over the years along with the reasons they were banned.  You just might get interested in reading some of them yourself!
