"You can’t please everyone. Every book will have its fans and its foes. But restricting reading for another person or group of people? That goes too far." -- Melissa Taylor, Teacher & Author
During the last week of September, libraries all over the country celebrate Banned Books Week. Each year hundreds of books are banned or challenged. People often challenge books because they dislike or disagree with the content of the book. When a book is banned, a library is forced to remove it from the shelf, which means NO ONE is allowed to read the book.
Libraries believe that ONE group or person should NOT decide what EVERYONE else is allowed to read. During Banned Books Week, libraries recognize your right to CHOOSE the best books for YOU.
Unlock examples of banned and challenged books, and celebrate your right to ______. (THINK YOU KNOW THE CODE?!? Sometimes people get things backwards...).
