It's Banned Books Week!
September 24-30, 2017
During Banned Books Week, libraries across America highlight books that have been both challenged and banned. A
challenge is a formal attempt to restrict materials, by removing them from school curricula or library shelves, and a
ban is the successful removal of those materials.
Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others. As such, they are a threat to freedom of speech and choice.
Celebrate your freedom to read: READ A BANNED BOOK!
