Banned Books Week – 2023

Banned Books Week – 2023

Every Fall, libraries across the nation observe Banned Books Week. This is an opportunity to celebrate our freedom to read by highlighting books that some people think you shouldn’t be allowed to read. 2023 has seen an unprecedented surge in book challenges particularly in public libraries. Last Spring, in anticipation of this week, our interns from Mamaroneck High School interviewed members of the community about book banning. Each day this week we will highlight one of those interviews in a separate post. First up is MHS Principal Lina Carolini-Cannavò, followed by: Dr. Garrett A. Weston; Firefighter James Montemarano; Manor Park Deli’s Manu Singh; and concluding with local drug store employee Michelina Carbon.

We’d like to thank our MHS interns, Bella, Catherine, Zoey, and Sofia for the interviews and the accompanying graphics. This was only a small part of the help they provided the library during their time here.
