About Banned Books
- Every year across the country parents, administrators, politicians, religious groups and library patrons challenge books that they feel are inappropriate for the community.
- Challenging a book in an attempt to remove it from a school or public library is a threat to your First Amendment rights. It takes away your right to choose material that is appropriate for yourself or your family.
- It is important to speak out against these challenges so that everyone can celebrate the Freedom to Read. Stand up against censorship by reading a book from the American Library Association's (ALA) banned book list.
