LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Lawrence Public Library has announced the winners of its Banned Book trading card design contest.

Banned Books Week will be celebrated nationally from Sunday through Sept. 28, with one card per day being released to the public.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/16LI7ZR ) the seven winners selected from about 100 entries were announced Thursday. This year’s winning banned books trading cards feature a variety of titles from “Charlotte’s Web” to “Catcher in the Rye.”

The project drew so much attention the library had to order a second printing of cards.

Jeni Daley, the library’s marketing coordinator, says the project hopes to show the community that the library is more than a place to get books.
