September 26th

Banned Book Week

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event held during the last week of September. Banned Books Week, September 24 through October 1, highlights the benefits of free and open access to information. Its purpose is to draw attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States.

Upcoming display windows

One very big attraction at the Solon Library is the lovely display window designed by Toni Russo. The next display, entitled, “A Reel In-Tents Experience” will be dedicated to long-time Solon resident, Earl Miller. Toni is looking for some items to help complete the window, particularly old items, including binoculars, a thermos, compasses, Girl & Boy Scout small item memorabilia, campfire items and fishing items found within a boat, i.e., tackle, boots and dip net.

Book Club

Listed as number seven in the eastern Iowans best sellers list this week is “Zeitoun” by Dave Eggers. This book is also the One Community, One Book selection and has been or will be discussed at other area libraries as well as our own. The Solon Area Book Club will meet Oct. 18 at 6:30 p.m. and will be discussing this selection. The Book Club welcomes adults who wish to join in for just one discussion as well as new memberships.  The library will be borrowing extra copies for those who will be participating in this discussion.
