We are asking for volunteers to sit in our display and (silently) read a banned book. Patrons can sign up for ½ hour time slots, and are welcome to take multiple slots. The sign-up sheet is at the circulation desk. You can stop-in (1401 5th Street), call (319.248.1850), or e-mail ( to find out what times are open and get your name on the list. There will be many banned or challenged books in the display from which to choose, or you can bring their own banned book.

When do we need volunteers? All day, while the library is open, from Sept. 22-28.

  2. On Monday I read “Alice in Wonderland” (yes Alice has been challenged as appropriate reading material!) in the Live Banned Books display for half an hour.

    There are still time slots available if you would like to help bring attention to banned books week with the Coralville Public Library. Check, at the circulation desk today! circ phone: 319.248.1850
