Read a Banned Book!

Another year goes by and we continue to see challenges to our freedom to read.

Learn more about book challenges and banned books by going to the America Library Association website about Banned Books during Banned Books Week - September 26?October 3, 2009.  Especially interesting are the graph and charts showing who challenges, why they challenge and what organizations are challenged.

To kick off Banned Books Week 2009, American Library Association has produced a new Banned Books Week Public Service Announcement featuring the puppets from “Crash Pad”.  See below. This video is also available on the Office of Intellectual Freedom blog at
