MOUNTAIN VIEW – Sept 22-28 is National Banned Book week, and the Mountain View Library promoted the freedom to read.

Many books have been banned through the years for many different reasons, from racism to religious view points, said Misty Baker, librarian. Many different groups have tried to have books banned over the years. They usually approach the library about the book. They may complete a request for reconsideration of Library material. And then it is up to the Library director and Library Board to remove the book or leave it in the Library.

“The American Library Association has adopted a Bill of Rights, The Mountain View Library is proud to up hold those right and allow our patrons the right to read,” Baker said.

For more information, readers can look up the ALA web site. They would probably be surprised at the amount of "classic" books that has been banned over the years, Baker added.
