Banned Books

Stand Up for Your Right to Read

Every year, the American Library Association records hundreds of attempts to remove books from libraries and classrooms. Help them fight back during #BannedBookWeek – typically at the end of September each year. See complete book lists and learn more at http://www.ala.org/bbooks/banned.
