Banned Book Week

Banned Books Week is being celebrated by the American Library Association and many American libraries this week (Sept 26-Oct 2nd)!

It's a yearly reminder of the precious freedom we enjoy in the United States to read and write what we choose, and a reminder that even if we disagree with a book's point of view, it should still be available for others to read and make up their own minds about.


The Banned Books website lists 2009's ten most challenged books. It also lists previous years' most challenged titles and ways that you can celebrate our right to read and think freely.

Come into our library and pick up a bookmark, ask librarians about banned books, and pick one up to read this week! If you do, let us know what you read!
