WNCT coverage of Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week was Sept. 18-24 and the ECU main campus library celebrated our freedom to read with various programming and displays.

A Banned Books Read Out event included a presentation by Teaching Resources Center education reference librarian Vatoyia Gardner, who was featured in this coverage by WNCT.  Students had the chance to read excerpts from their favorite books.

Displays included an opportunity to take a photo with a book in front of a poster titled, “Wanted for contesting censorship AKA the informed reader.” Local H.B. Sugg Elementary & Sam D. Bundy Elementary Schools joined in support of ECU and created a poster of their own for photo opportunities at their school.
