Fall Break

Fall Break is coming up on October 13 and 14. However, the Cato campus library will be open from 8:00 AM-4:00 PM both days. The law library -CT200 will be CLOSED. We hope you have a good relaxing break. Come by the library and check out our leisure reads and DVDs. They can be a good way to spend your time during the break.

Both libraries will resume regular hours on Wednesday, Oct. 15.

For other library hours during the break, please see: http://www.cpcc.edu/cpcc/library/about-the-library/hours

Have a wonderful and safe fall break! Enjoy your time off!

Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read

Banned Books Week, September 22-September 26, celebrates the freedom to read. Banned books are titles that have been targeted with removal or restriction due to the content of the book. While books have been and continue to be banned, the reason for the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read.

We have quite a few books that have been challenged over the years here at the Cato campus library. So come to the library and see our display of some of our banned books. Celebrate your freedom to read!

Here are a few examples:

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Lord of the Flies by William Golding

The Color Purple by Alice Walker
