Banned Books Week is coming up! From September 18-24, we (along with libraries everywhere, the American Library Association, and other organizations) will be celebrating the freedom to read. Below you’ll find a list of the top 10 banned books of 2020 and 2021, as reported to the American Library Association. You can head to their website for more information about why they were banned, as well as the top 10 from previous years. We also have a display with more information and bookmarks in front of our Reference desk at the Library!
