Banned Books Week
Sep 25 @ 12:00 am – Oct 1 @ 11:45 pm

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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 top ten most frequently challenged books of 2015 will be listed during National Library Week on April 10, 2016.
