Banned Books Week

September 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - September 24, 2022 @ 5:00 pm CDT


Celebrate your freedom to read by stopping in at your Library this week to see our Banned Books display and to pick up your free “I Read Banned Books” sticker.

Each year, the American Library Association tracks attempts to ban or restrict access to books across the United States. In 2021, the Office for Intellectual Freedom tracked 729 challenges to library, school, and university materials and services, affecting 1,597 books.

The office also noted a focus on demands to remove books that addressed racism and racial justice or those that shared the stories of Black, Indigenous, or people of color. A list of banned and challenged titles can be found on the ALA website.
