National Coming Out Day


National Coming Out Day celebrates coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) or as an ally. This year (on Thursday, October 11, 2018) we celebrate the 30th anniversary of National Coming Out Day!

In the Middle School Library we’re celebrating National Coming Out Day all month! The books on display feature LGBTQ characters, or are about LGBTQ events & figures in history.

Banned Books Week: Book Display

Banned Books Week was held on September 23 – 29. The 2018 theme, “Banning Books Silences Stories,” was a reminder that everyone needs to speak out against the tide of censorship. We celebrated Banned Books Week by featuring a display of books in the library that have been banned or challenged somewhere in the US. Many of them were some of our most popular titles! This helped accentuate the importance of granting the freedom to read for all ages and readers.
