Photo feature: Freedom to read celebrated

The Kraemer Family Library invited faculty, staff and students to participate in Banned Books Week by reading aloud from books that were once sought to be banned on El Pomar Plaza Sept. 29.

Several volunteers participated in the event that began at 10 a.m. A display of the banned books will continue near the library’s circulation desk through Oct. 3, according to Martin Garnar, dean, Kraemer Family Library.
