LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The Lawrence Public Library has received a prestigious national award for a marketing campaign that used trading cards to promote banned books.

The American Library Association announced this week that the library was one of eight in the country to win a 2013 John Cotton Dana Award. The award includes a $10,000 award and plaque.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/ZmBUQR ) the library last year asked artists across the country to submit work depicting their favorite banned books. Winning artworks were reproduced on trading cards, which included a reason for banning each book.

The cards were sold online to buyers in every state and several foreign countries.

The Lawrence library plans to have the banned books trading card project again this year.
