Would you be surprised to learn that books like Harry Potter, The Call of the Wild, The Color Purple and 1984 have all been banned? Each year, the American Library Association records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from libraries shelves and classrooms.
In honor of Banned Books Week and in conjunction with the PA-wide library initiative SnapShotPA, the NCC libraries invited students, faculty and staff to stop by on October 11 to pose with their favorite banned titles.
Check out who came to proudly pose with their favorite books in this Flickr photo slideshow.
