The first amendment to the Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press . . .”. Every year there are numerous challenges to books on library shelves and in classrooms with requests to remove materials due to content or appropriateness. This leads to restricted access to the challenged books, which is in direct violation of our first amendment rights.
Thank you to all who participated in our “Which of These Challenged or Banned Books Have You Read?” poll during Banned Books Week (September 27 – October 3). We recorded 44 instances of people having read challenged or banned books out of the top ten list from 2014.
As a result, the Library is purchasing copies of three of the top ten to be added to our fiction collection.

Coached by CSL Moot Court alum, Cassidy Estes-Rogers, these ladies knocked it out of the park and made the CSL Moot Court Honor Board proud. A great start to our year!!
