Banned Books Week
Fight censorship by exercising your freedom to read. Enjoy any of these controversial titles, part of the most challenged books list of 2020. For more information or to check out one of these titles, please ask a librarian on the 2nd floor of the Learning Commons. 

About Banned Books Week:
A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. 
 
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, 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, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
