Sept. 30 – Oct. 6, SCC Library will celebrate the freedom to read and the value of the first amendment. On October 4 at 3:00, the library will show a film based on the book “To Kill a Mockingbird.” by Harper Lee. The book’s themes of racial inequality and sexual deviation led some to challenge the book arguing that it was not appropriate for schoolchildren to read in their classrooms and for libraries to keep it in their collections. The American Library Association reported that To Kill a Mockingbird was number 21 of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 2000–2009.
