  • Dear Banned Author

    September 26 - October 2, 2021

    Speaking out for banned and challenged books is vital in the fight against censorship. Dear Banned Author is a letter-writing campaign that encourages readers to write, tweet, or email banned or challenged authors during Banned Books Week (September 26 - October 2, 2021), sharing what their stories mean to them. 

    Come into the library to pick up postcards to send to your favorite Banned Author!  We will have certain authors addresses as well.  Fill out your postcard and bring it back to the library so we can mail them out.  

    Teens receive 1 Hour of community service for your participation! 

    All participants that bring back postcards to the library will be entered into a raffle for an Amazon Fire Tablet!



Teens in grades six through twelve can earn community service by reading books and submitting a review, which will be posted on our website.


You must be in grades 6-12 to submit a review.

Teens can review one book per month.

Each review will be worth 2 community service hours.

The book must be a young adult title, either fiction or non-fiction.  We would prefer that the book be published within the last 12 months, but it is not required.

Submissions will be reviewed by the Teen Department before community service is awarded.  We reserve the right to deny community service credit if we do not find the review to be acceptable.  We may also ask the reviewer to expand upon the review and resubmit it.  Upon acceptance, you will be emailed your community service certificate.
