I love giving books away! We are giving away a curated selection of banned books (also in Spanish) as part of our Banned Books Week celebration. Books will be raffled off an a number of our Banned Books Week programming. We purchase and circulate new banned books every year, but we are also fortunate to have budget that supports us giving books away to our community. We have supported our Spanish language book club, and child and teen book clubs by providing free books a month prior to the book club event. In October we will be paying homage to Noah Webster, his birthday month, by giving out free dictionaries at our primarily Spanish speaking library branch. We found a great origination called The Dictionary Project, whose mission is to assist all students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary. Each dictionary cost $3 and the money helps support the good work at The Dictionary Project.
