Liberal’s Memorial Library has a display for Banned Books Week featuring the book  “Farenheit 451” which is the temperature at which book paper will burn. In the book, firemen go out on calls and go to homes where there are books, and they burn them. “Farenheit 451” has been out for about 50 years. It was written by Ray Bradbury in 1963. Other books on display include, “Gone with the Wind,” “Twilight,” “Lord of the Rings,” “Huckleberry Finn,”  “The Earth, my Butt and Other Great Round Things,” and “All Quiet on the Western Front.” Wait, why is “Twilight” in there? “Oh my gosh, they’re vampires. They’re undead. There may not be a God,” front desk man Steven Sitz joked. The theme is selected by the American Library Association, according to what books have been challenged.
