Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week Each year the ALA promotes awareness of challenges to library materials and celebrates freedom of speech. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
