May is Asian American History Month

May is a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States.  The month of May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese to the United States on May 7, 1843, and to mark the anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869.  The majority of the workers who laid the tracks were Chinese immigrants.

Banned Book Week

http://www.bannedbooksweek.org

Banned Book Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.  It highlights the value of free and open access to information.  This freedom, not only to choose what we read, but also to select from a full array of possibilities, is firmly rooted in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Book Week draws attention to the harms of censorship.  Check out some of the most challenged and banned books at the library.
