ALA Banned Books Week, Sept. 24 Through Oct. 1, 2011

The American Library Association (ALA) has slated September 24 through October 1, 2011, as Banned Books Week. Visit the ALA website for lots of interesting information about censorship and our freedom to choose what we read.  We have a promo trailer for this year's Banned Books Week:

We made a video last year for the 2010 event, which you might also enjoy.

Visit your favorite library (or libraries) to check-out challenged or banned books. You might be surprised to discover some of the works that have been challenged or banned from libraries. It is well worth exploring.
