See Living, Breathing, Reading People!

The Rockingham Free Public Library invites you to take part in a special event.

We invite you to sign up to be a "model-reader" during this Banned Books Week celebration. The live display will be ongoing from September 26 until October 3, with reading opportunities from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Each year we join libraries across the country in Banned Book Week activites and events. We celebrate an idea rooted in our Constitution's First Amendment which guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of press: the freedom to choose what we read and to be able to select from a full array of possibilities.

This year we are celebrating our freedom to read with an exciting "live" display in downtown Bellows Falls. With a nod to circus exhibits "Watch Live Humans Read" will fill the window of Works on Paper store located in The Square.

Looking through a circus poster, passers-by will see an easy chair, lamp, books and local folks of all ages caught in the act of reading books that have been banned and challenged. This display will be ongoing during the week.

Please email rockpub@sover.net, call 463-4270, or stop by the library and reserve the time that you would like to be seen supporting our freedom to read.
