onebookOne Book One Siouxland this week

Join the conversation! Come to the Morningside Branch Library and discuss Fahrenheit 451 with other enthusiastic readers on Monday, April 2, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Fahrenheit 451 is about censorship and those who ban books for fear of creating too much individualism and independent thought. It is, itself, a banned book. On Thursday, April 5, Dave Mixdorf, Director of the South Sioux City Public Library, presents “Why Do You Have Banned Books in Your Library?” at 6:30 p.m. at the South Sioux City Public Library, 2121 Dakota Ave.
