Celebrate Your Freedom to Read! Banned Books Week (Sept. 18-24, 2022)

Did you know more books were challenged or removed from U.S. libraries this year than any other since the American Library Association (ALA) started tracking book censorship more than 20 years ago? During Banned Books Week (Sept. 18-24), we’ll have fun activities and giveaways celebrating your Freedom to Read and highlighting the diversity of our collections. Come find out more about why books are being challenged and how a librarian can help you find the book that’s right for you.
