Banned Books Week

This week marks Banned Books Week, an annual event sponsored by the American Library Association that celebrates the freedom to read.  The week is dedicated to highlighting the benefits of free and open access to information and the harm of censorship by drawing attention to books that have been banned or threatened with bans in the U.S.

Check out  a  list of  some classic titles that have been banned or challenged in the U.S.–  Banned and Challenged Books.  Then come into the library and check them out for yourself.
