I read banned books!

I work in a library and libraries all over are celebrating Banned Books Week this week. 

From the ALA (American Libraries Association) website ~~

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. 

Here are some links to sites that are great to show what this event is all about. 

Frequently Challenged Books ~ More specific information is found using the links below  

AND you can check out all these wonderful blogs that are participating in the Banned Books Week Hop and maybe win some wonderful stuff! I am not participating in the blog hop this year but plan to next year.

Now go get a banned book to read!
