Back and Bigger than Ever

Banned Books Week was September 25 – October 1, 2016, and the Chapel Hill Public Librharry-potterary celebrated with the fourth set of Banned Books Week Trading Cards.

“The Banned Books Trading Cards project grows in popularity each year,” says Library Director Susan Brown.  “While the cards showcase great local artists, the message of the project – celebrating the freedom to read – is universal. We have shipped cards all over the county and the world and the project has been featured in local, state, and national media outlets.”

Once again artists from Orange, Durham, Wake, Chatham, and Alamance counties were encouraged to submit small scale works that are in some way inspired by a banned or challenged book or author. A jury selected seven pieces that were printed as a series of trading cards.  See the Library’s Banned Books Week page.

The Banned Books Trading Cards receives annual support from the Friends of CHPL.
