Banned Books Week is an annual event which celebrates the freedom to read. Librarians, booksellers, publishers, and teachers across the country unite during Banned Books Week to oppose censorship and ensure free access to information and books.
Visit our library’s display window to see some of the frequently challenged books from schools and libraries over the last few years. Feel free to check one out! Visit the American Library Association’s (ALA) list of the most frequently challenged books and learn the reasons why they are challenged in libraries and schools: http://www.ala.org/bbooks/frequentlychallengedbooks.
Come by the library desk to pick up a fun bookmark with the ALA’s superhero graphic and defend your freedom to read!
