In celebration of Banned Books Week, Medina County’s BookShelf stores will be offering a sale on all hardcover books and trade paperbacks from Sept. 22-27.

“Sometimes we take for granted the many freedoms afforded to us as Americans.  There are people who would like to censor reading material, especially in school settings.  Banned Books Week is a national celebration of our freedom to read,” noted BookShelf manager Diane Shreve.  “We would love to have more readers exploring the books we offer at The BookShelf, so we are offering a special sale on all hardcovers and trade paperback books this week.”

Hardcover books (normally $3.25 each) and trade paperback books (normally $2.25 each) will be “buy one, get one free” for the week.  Stop in and explore our books—nearly all books in the stores are donated by generous county residents, so you never know what treasures you might find!

The BookShelf stores, at 831 Pearl Road in Brunswick, 130 Main Street in Wadsworth, and 105 W. Liberty Street in Medina, are the only bookstores in the county.  The stores support the literacy and adult tutoring operations of non-profit Project: LEARN of Medina County.

“You might be surprised at the types of books that get challenged in libraries.  Books like the Harry Potter series are often challenged by those who want to censor what children read.  At Project: LEARN and The BookShelf, we encourage readers of all ages to explore whatever kinds of books they enjoy—a reader is a reader!” added Karla Robinson, executive director of Project: LEARN.

BookShelf stores are open Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm, Saturdays, 10am-4pm.
