For our September meeting, we will be discussing This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki. This book was named the most challenged book of 2016 in the American Library Association’s annual Top Ten Challenged Books list. Complaints surrounded the story's inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters, drug use, and profanity, and it was considered sexually explicit with mature themes. In 2016, the book was removed from a K-12 library in Henning, Minnesota.

Ages 13-17. The Banned Book Club meets once a month on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. in the Board Room on the second floor. This is a drop-in program. Please contact for inquiries into this program.
