Banned Books Week: Advocacy Library Teaser

Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week is an annual event, usually the last week in September, that brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — to draw national attention to the harms of censorship. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restricted in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship. The ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom offers ideas for how to get involved, free downloads, and display ideas.
