Who’s more bookish, cats or dogs?!

It’s DOGtober!

Over on Facebook last year, cats proved to be Oskaloosa’s most bookish pet. We believe it’s time for a re-match!

Post a photo of your pet reading on our timeline this month so we can see who the true bookish champions are!

Youth Librarian Ms. Kilie created these posters inspired by some of her favorite books that have been challenged around the country and world. Check them out the next time you’re in the children’s area!

Seen here: Youth Librarian Ms. Kilie with a banned book! 
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss was challenged because it was seen as portraying the foresting industry in an arguably negative way.

jubilantics:

Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. — Alfred Whitney Griswald

Banned Books Mugshots: Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska), Janie Crawford (Their Eyes Were Watching God), Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye), Harry Potter (Harry Potter), and Hester Prynne (The Scarlet Letter).
