Banned Books Week - October 1 – 7, 2023: Home

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.

Top 13 Most Challenged Books - 2022

Every year, the Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) of the American Library Association compiles a list of the Top Ten Most Challenged Books in order to inform the public about censorship in libraries and schools. The lists are based on information from media stories and voluntary challenge reports sent to OIF from communities across the United States. A new list is released during National Library Week in April.
