Banned Books Week 9/30-10/6

Celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week . For 30 years now, libraries across the country have celebrated Banned Books Week by reminding people of their right to access information of all kinds.

Banned books are titles that have been removed from a library. If a book has been "challenged" it means a person or a group has requested that the book be removed but after close examination the library decided to keep the book.
