Banned Books Week

E-mail or drop off a selfie or other photo of you and your favorite book at the Amherst Library Circulation desk.

If you prefer not to take a picture, no problem, just e-mail your name, the book title and how you want your name to appear, or not (we will post and display anonymous entries as well).

Please send your entry to: with the subject line “Banned Book”.

Send in your entry anytime from Wednesday, September 8 through Wednesday, October 6.

The library will post them on social media and in a special library display.

The display will be up from the middle of September through October.
