Banned Books Week: Classics in the library

By Lisa M. Rabey
Systems & Web Librarian

Why a book is challenged or banned can be anyone’s guess. It can range from what is considered to be inappropriate language, content, situations, belief systems, and religious ideals to name a few reasons. As a library, our main goal is to provide open and immediate access to information and content. We are not here to judge or restrict, but to serve.

Below is a listing of titles, available via GRCC Library, of over 40 classics that were challenged from the Radcliffe Publishing Course listing of the 20th century’s top 100 novels.

If you’re interested in other Top 100 lists, go to Modern Library for other lists of interest.
