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.
