It makes sense, but the 4th of July always gets me thinking about Banned Books Week (usually the last week in September). Now is a great time to start planning what you want to do.
At the bare minimum, I recommend doing a display. But you can also do things like read ins, contests and more. I like the idea of setting up a “photo booth” and have teens get their pictures taken reading a banned book.
Whatever you are planning, here are some posters to help get you in the spirit. You can share them electronically or use them in your library.
You can also find some Banned Books Week posters I made for Chris Crutcher last year at http://www.chriscrutcher.com/extras.html
