The Random House Library Marketing Team is excited to join with hundreds of librarians, bookstores, and publishers to celebrate Banned Books Week (9/22-9/28). We’ve thought of a few ways to support the movement, and have gathered some great resources for your library.
TAKE A PICTURE WITH A BANNED BOOK
Show us you stand with us and that you read banned books too! We ask that you take a selfie or have someone photograph you reading a banned book. Photos can be serious or fun. We welcome your creativity!
We then ask you to put your pic on social media, be it FB, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. Please use the hashtag #bannedbooksweek and tag us @RHLibrary. If you email your pic to firstname.lastname@example.org we’ll add you to our Banned Books Week Pinterest and Tumblr Boards.
**The first 25 people to send us their pic will receive a RH Library tote bag!
BANNED BOOKS PINTEREST BOARD:
Pin with us. We invite you to be collaborators to our Banned Books Week Pinterest Board. If you would like to join, follow our board and send your Pinterest username to email@example.com. And we’ll set you up so you can have fun pinning with us during Banned Books Week.
Download our “Censorship Causes Blindness” posters.
