Banned Books Week: September 27-October 2 Join the Conversation!
September 26 - October 2
Banned Books Week (September 26 – October 2, 2021 this year) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted for removal or restriction in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.
We’ll have a special display with over TWO HUNDRED banned books, with incentives for banned book purchases, so stop on by!
