Banned book trading cards earn prestigious award
April 26, 2013 | 10:00 am
Lawrence Library picked seven books to put on its trading cards from 46 submissions. Books included 1984 (pictured), Animal Farm, and Little Red Riding Hood. The cards gained national attention, and they’re still receiving more.
Locals got free packs, but the library sold others online and sent packs around the world, including to England, Canada and Australia, library director Brad Allen told the newspaper.
Packs can still be purchased on the library’s website for $7.00 each, and officials plan to continue the project this year.
