Banned Books Week
Celebrate YOUR freedom to read during Banned Books Week, September 30−October 6, 2012
You can check out books from our display of banned and challenged books in the Walker library atrium.
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.
Take a look at a list of the most challenged books in 2011 compiled by the The American Library Association.
