Banned Books Week, sponsored by the American Library Association, is an important opportunity for Buckley to advocate for intellectual freedom, personal autonomy and choice, and for the value of intellectual resources. We do it to remind our students that some of the books they're familiar with are limited or forbidden in other places in the country, and around the world. For example, it was just this year that Harry Potter was banned in a Catholic school in Tennessee. So, we celebrate the freedom to read every year!
In an effort to continue building upon Dr. King’s legacy of service to the community, the Office of DEI partnered with The Valley of Change to develop a daily calendar filled with action opportunities.
