Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week is an opportunity to celebrate our freedom to read and our First Amendment rights by focusing on the benefits of having free access to information and the freedom to express ideas and how attempts to censorship can detract from these freedoms. Libraries are celebrating this week the freedom to read. Readers can participate in the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out by creating videos proclaiming the virtues of the freedom to read that will be featured on a dedicated YouTube channel. Submit your virtual read out video to participate.

ALA, American Library Association, lists the frequently challenged titles over the years, including the top 10 most frequently challenged books since 2001. You can learn more about each of these banned or challenged books in Literary Reference Center in GALILEO.
