Most of the books they discuss can also be borrowed as ebooks using OverDrive or Libby. All you need is your Mentor Public Library card.
By the way, Banned Books Week is an opportunity for us to remind you about all the society-changing books that have been banned or challenged. And there’s a good chance that list includes your personal favorite.
Imagine your bookshelf without To Kill a Mockingbird, Color Purple, Animal Farm, or Lord of the Rings.
So commemorate Banned Books Week in the best possible way: Read.
Read a book that’s been banned or challenged. Read whatever you like.
But read. And decide for yourself what belongs on your bookshelf.

More than a century late, the Cleveland Underwater Explorers (CLUE) located the shipwreck about 25 miles off of Cleveland. See photos of the preserved wreck and learn more about this remarkable ship and storm during Magee’s talk.
