Banned Books Week 2023 is October 1-7. Banned Books Week highlights challenged and banned books and celebrates the freedom to read. The American Library Association defines a challenge to a book as “an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group.” Banned Books Week has been celebrated since the 1980s, with support from librarians, teachers, publishers, and readers of all ages. The theme for this year’s event is Let Freedom Read.
You can celebrate Banned Books Week with EVPL at multiple locations by checking out a challenged title from our Banned Books Week displays.
With 8 locations throughout Vanderburgh County, EVPL is ready to discover, explore, and connect WITH you! We encourage you to uncover new things, revisit old favorites, and to engage with us along the way.
