Banned Books, the First Amendment, and the ALA!


Aside from the freedom of speech, religion, the press, and peaceable assembly, the First Amendment also protects, the freedom of expression of thoughts, ideas, and opinions, and if not for institutions like the library, many of these thoughts, ideas, and opinions would go virtually unnoticed.










From a historical standpoint, the library has been a staunch supporter of public enlightenment and the freedom of open access- all of which present as challenges to censorship.














Within this context, organizations like the ALA (American Library Association) have worked to uphold the First Amendment and the provisions that it provides.

Founded in 1876, the ALA  has long played a key role in promoting intellectual freedom, literacy, and education, and it is for this reason and many others, that the Cato Campus Library along with the ALA is supporting your right to freely create, publish, and read–by celebrating Banned Books Week.

Cruise Into Fall 2016 With Dean Henderson!






Welcome Dean Henderson

The Cato Campus would like to extend a warm welcome to our new campus dean, Mr. George Henderson. When he is not overseeing the administrative operations of the Cato Campus, he enjoys spending time riding his Harley Davidson and collecting motorcycle memorabilia.

His love of riding has taken him to different cities across the United States including Houston, TX, Kissimmee, FL, and Washington D.C. to name a few.

When we had a chance to catch up with Dean Henderson, he was gracious enough to loan some of his most prized collectibles to the Cato Campus Library for display and also provide us with a sneak peak into his life on a motorcycle.

Check out some of Dean Henderson’s favorite pieces and a few photographs of his travels!
