Banned Books Week 2014
September 21 to 27 is Banned Books Week!
Banned Books week is an annual event that celebrates the freedom to read. It highlights the value of free and open access to information.
To see a list of books that others have attempted to ban, view The American Library Association's (ALA) list of Frequently Challenged Books. Also view their list of Banned and Challenged Classics. Chances are that you will find a couple of your favorites on that list.
Here is a short list of books banned or challenged in 2013-2014.
Celebrate your freedom to read by selecting a book from a list of banned books available at the Logan Library:
