September 2016

Banned Books Week
Stand Up for Your Right to Read Sept. 25 to Oct. 1, 2016
Defend the First Amendment and Read a Banned or
Challenged Book
Are books really still banned in the United States? Yes! Every year, the American Library
Association reports hundreds of challenges to books in schools and libraries all over the United States, and ALA estimates that the unreported number of challenges is significantly higher. People continually try to take away readers’ power to decide what books are right for themselves or their children by bringing challenges to remove books
