Sponsored since 1982 by the American Library Association, Banned Books Week draws attention to ongoing efforts in schools and communities to remove books or restrict readers' access to materials. Libraries encourage communities to celebrate their freedom to read by featuring frequently challenged books and promoting discussion of censorship efforts. Learn more from the ALA.
This guide highlights challenged books available at your library at James Sprunt Community College. It also provides links to online resources for understanding book banning and discovering real-life examples from across the nation.
