Celebrate Your Freedom to Read Each year, Banned Books Week (September 24 through October 1, 2011) is celebrated by the American Library Association and libraries around the country. It is their mission to raise awareness of the ongoing attempts by individuals or groups to ban or challenge books in our schools and public libraries.
This year, the Long Beach Public Library would like to shine a spotlight on these books. Decide for yourself, exercise your intellectual freedom and First Amendment rights to read any book of your choosing. Get involved and choose to read a banned/challenged book!
