Banned Books Week
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.
It spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community—librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types—in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas.
Celebrate by asking your librarian for a Banned Book recommendation or by checking out one of our Banned Books displays or activities!
