Keyana + Beats by Dre HeadphonesThe Northwest One library is elated to announce that one of our readers, Keyana Yates, won Beats by Dre headphone for completing Summer Reading! Keyana happened to be our SYEP teen, so we were especially excited that she won.

Keyana is a wonderful person who loves reading. Over the summer she got to experience some of what it's like to work at a library and we really enjoyed having her. Keyana made our Teen Space Summer Reading display. We also had "Keyana's Picks," where Keyana marked some of her favorite books with a special book mark so others might find books she likes.

Lord of the Flies

The reasons books are challenged or banned ranges from graphic sexual content to including depictions of "evil gods and black magic." From Harry Potter to Lolita, the list of banned books grows every year. Many of our favorite, most cherished, most canonized titles are on the list.
