Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read
September 26–October 3 

KDL invites you to celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week. This event is observed each year during the last week of September and celebrated nation-wide. Since 1982, Banned Books Week reminds Americans not to take this democratic freedom for granted.

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read as well as the freedom to express one’s opinion even when that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular. The current list of banned books is quite impressive, as is the conviction of those that choose to stand up for our freedom to read and never take that freedom for granted.

    Hi Aaron,

    I just checked, and both ALA links are working correctly. Perhaps the site was down momentarily, but if you try again, it should work.

    Thanks,
