Support Banned Books Week: Text to Give
Donate $10.00 to help support the Banned Books Week initiative by texting ALABBW to 41518.
Every year, the American Library Association organizes Banned Books Week—a highly visible celebration of the freedom to read. Banned Books Week provides an opportunity for millions of readers to learn more about historical and ongoing efforts to block access to literature, and discover the power of thinking for themselves.
ALA’s work opposing censorship takes place not just during Banned Books Week, but throughout the year. OIF tracks hundreds of challenges to books and other materials in libraries and classrooms across the country. We provide advice, letters of support, access to legal assistance, policy recommendations, and much more to librarians, teachers, and community members looking to keep books on the shelves. We conduct trainings, media interviews, and online education about how and why to defend the freedom to read.
We provide this vital support at no charge to those needing assistance. But this work takes resources.
You can help ALA help librarians and support the Banned Books Week initiative by texting ALABBW to 41518. Your $10.00 tax-deductible contribution will help fund Banned Books Week and OIF’s work throughout the year.
