Banned Books Week: Sept. 23-29, 2018


Today is the first day of Banned Books Week!

This year's theme is "Banning Books Silences Stories." 

What is Banned Books Week?
"Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular." -- ALA Banned Books Week

Interested in learning more? There's a Banned Books Week LibGuide for that! It features an overview of  Banned Books Week history and challenged books, Library Resources and Internet & Infographic Resources, links to frequently banned and challenged books for the last ten yearschallenged classics, and an interactive timeline highlighting 30 Years of Challenged Literature.

Be sure to follow us as we celebrate #BannedBooksWeek.
