Want to do something just a little wicked?

“Celebrate the Freedom to Read” this year by reading a book from the American Library Association’s (ALA) Banned Book List.

Every year, across the country, books are challenged in schools and libraries for their “inappropriate” content.

Banning books is a challenge to your First Amendment rights and takes away an individual’s right to choose material that is appropriate for yourself or your family.

Taking a stand against censorship

Celebrating Banned Books Week shows the importance of taking a stand against censorship and honors the free exchange of ideas, speech and expression.

“We brag about living in an open society but here is a list of 100 well known titles that people have sought to keep from out fellow citizens.”
— Michael Miller, Dean of Library Services
