Celebrate Your Freedom to Read: Banned Books Week
Celebrate open access to information and your freedom to read during Banned Books Week, September 24 though October 1.
"Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week." (ALA, 2011)
For the first time, everyone can participate in a Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out on YouTube. Videos (no more than two minutes long) can be submitted by anyone as long as the video includes a reading from a banned or challenged book.
Or, find a Frequently Challenged Classic to read and celebrate your freedom!
