Banned Books Week 2024

We can find freedom in the pages of a book. But book bans and censorship threaten that freedom, along with many other rights and institutions. During Banned Books Week 2024 (September 22-28, 2024) and beyond, let’s share our love of right to read and the freedom found in books. Let’s be Freed Between the Lines!
