It's Banned Books Week 2020! Each day, we're showing you different titles that have been banned (removed from a school or library) or challenged (an effort was made to remove the title from a school/ library).

According to the ACLU of Texas, this award-winning novel was challenged in Texas and North Carolina in 2015. One parent felt the novel “promoted illegal immigration and was not age appropriate," while other parents were upset that the book "addressed issues like racism, immigration, and ethnic class struggles."

Please note that Platteville Public/ Nantes Libraries may not have received any challenges regarding this or any title.

“As a farmer, I’ve watched Lori Saine work on difficult water issues important to Weld County farmers. She has always fought to represent agriculture, Weld’s oldest industry, in the face of a rapidly urbanizing state.

Lori Saine will do us proud as a new Weld County commissioner.”
