[ARCHIVED] Words have power! Read a Banned Book!

We're celebrating the Freedom to Read, Sept. 24-30, 2017. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. To raise awareness about the harms of censorship and the freedom to read, the American Library Association (ALA) Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) publishes an annual list of the Top Ten Most Challenged Books, using information from public challenges reported in the media, as well as censorship reports submitted to the office through its challenge reporting form. Find out which books make the Top Ten Most Challenged Books of 2016 and check them out at your Library.
