Orcas Today: Thursday, October 1st

Orcas Library Banned Books Week
September 27th-October 3rd
“Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.” Stop by the library this week and check out a banned book!
