You May Not Read This Book! An Installation in Commemoration of Banned Books Week

On September 27th, artist and librarian, Doris Madsen created at Sixteen Acres Branch an hour long installation featuring blindfolded readers "reading" banned books of their choice. The American Library Association marks the last week of September as Banned Books Week. The freedom to read is a freedom libraries cherish and defend.

This event will be repeated on October 5, 6-7 pm at Pine Point Branch.
Doris is looking for volunteers to "read" blindfolded. Please if you are interested in participating as a "reader"contact her at or 413-263-6855.
