Images of Hyde Park, by James and Monica Heath, is a photographic history of Hyde Park and a reflection of times come and gone. Its essence carries forward for many, a curiosity of the town's rich history. You'll take a walk through Hyde Park's past as you turn the pages of this book. You may discover interesting facts about the town, or you might remember an image of time gone by.
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community – librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types – in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. While books have been and continue to be banned, part of 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.

Children at the Lanpher Library are offered a chance to write a book review about a book they've read this summer. Some students did all of the writing and illustrating themselves, and others chose to create the art and transcribe the words to an adult. To the right is a slide show with some samples of their reviews.
For other student reviews, check out the following link to Ms. Carr's class at Hyde Park Elementary School! The link can also be accessed on out links page.
