For best display celebrating “freedom to read”

NORFOLK, Va. – (Feb. 3, 2005) – Tidewater Community College’s Norfolk Campus Learning Resources Center has won the 2004 Banned Book Week Display Award from the Virginia Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Committee.

The VLA/IFC Banned Books Week Display contest, open to libraries throughout the Commonwealth, judges displays that celebrate a “freedom to read.” The VLA/IFC committee selects the winning display that best evokes the spirit of Banned Books Week with creativity and educational impact.

Each year the winning library receives a certificate of achievement, has its display featured on the IFC website and gets recognition in the VLA Newsletter.

Carolyn Roberts, library specialist with TCC, provided the vision for TCC’s winning display.
