Why do we celebrate Banned Books Week?
Because banning books silences stories. Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and highlighting the value of free and open access to information. The American Library Association recognizes your Freedom to Read, which is your right to choose what you read.
Stop by the library September 23 – September 29 to check out our Banned Books Display and learn which of your favorite books have been challenged or banned.
