Banned Books Week: September 22nd-28th


Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It highlights the value of free and open access to information, and brings together the entire community in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas–even those that some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The 2019 theme, “Censorship Leaves Us in the Dark – Keep the Light On,” is a reminder that everyone needs to draw attention to, and speak out against, censorship. 


READ BANNED BOOKS

One of the best ways to stand up to book censorship is to read banned books!

Below, you’ll find the Top 11 Most Challenged Books of 2018, according to the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom, which tracks challenges to library, school and university materials.
