Many libraries, including the Al Harris Library, will be celebrating Banned Books Week and the freedom to read during the week of September 22-28. Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. For more information on banned and challenged books, go to the American Library Association's web page on Banned and Challenged Books.
Come to the Al Harris Library and see our display of just some of the hundreds of books that are banned or challenged in the United States each year. Let's celebrate our freedom to read!
