Top 10 challenged books in 2016 #WordsHavePower Banned Book Week 2017

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. The week highlights the value of free and open access to information and for this year’s celebration the coalition of organizations that sponsors Banned Books Week will emphasize the importance of the First Amendment, which guarantees our inherent right to read. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community –- librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types –- in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

This year, there will be educational displays on the second floor to highlight the First Amendment and include some of our best-known and loved classics that have been banned or challenged in the United States. Please visit our special displays featuring books that have been targeted with censorship efforts in libraries and schools. For more information: www.bannedbooksweek.org.
