Celebrate Reading: Banned Books Week

Sunday, September 30th marks the beginning of Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read. For the thirtieth year in a row the reading community will come together to promote intellectual freedom and the right to express ideas. The American Library Association (ALA) along with tons of organizations across the country sponsor and support this important event.
To celebrate the Office for Intellectual Freedom is coordinating a 50 State Salute to Banned Books Week, which will consist of videos showing how each state’s community celebrates the freedom to read during Banned Books Week.
Virtual Read-Outs will also take place from September 30 - October 6th, so get those vocal muscles ready to make your video.
For more information about how you can get involved, check out the official website at Banned Books Week.

Will you be participating in Banned Books Week? 


  1. I did a blog post about it too, but that's as far as I've gotten! I wanted to make another video this year but just won't have the time.

    1. That's great. I'll check out your blog post tomorrow. A video would be a lot of fun. I have to see if I can get it in this time.
