Banned Books Week Spotlight: Yuma County Library

Posted By Jonathan M. Kelley, Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Each day during Banned Books Week we will profile one of the seven recipients of FTRF's Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund 2013 Banned Books Week grants. Day 3 features the Yuma County Library District in Arizona.

"Time in the Slammer" is the theme of Yuma County Library's Banned Books Week activities.  All week, community members are invited to one of six district libraries to sit and read banned and challenged books in "jail cells" created for this week (see example, below).

Keeping with that theme, tomorrow there will be a screening of the 1932 film Scarface with a discussion about film censorship.  5:00 p.m., Main Library, Yuma.

Yuma is also presenting "Banned Bands and Taboo Tunes," an interactive history of music censorship, yesterday at the main library and this coming Saturday morning at the Foothills branch.

See the entire list of events at http://yumalibrary.org/public/banned-book-week/.  You can also follow them on Twitter at @yumalibrary and Facebook at www.facebook.com/yumalibrary.
