Banned and Challenged Book List

Banned Books

The American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom compiles lists of banned and challenged books in order to inform the public about censorship efforts that affect libraries and schools. To celebrate Banned Books Week (September 18-24) and the freedom to read, our library staff have put together a list of titles that the American Library Association has identified as being frequently challenged or banned over the last decade. 

Banned Books Week is both a reminder of the unifying power of stories and the divisiveness of censorship. From Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, click here to take a look at our book list.
