Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week commemorates the core values of the library profession. Libraries are dedicated to protecting and promoting intellectual freedoms. ALA defines Intellectual Freedom as... the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view without restriction. It provides for free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored.

Providing awareness of our freedom for expression and our ability to seek and receive information is the central message of Banned Books Week. The Evergreen display will exhibit popular banned books from the collection and answer the following questions:

1. What is Banned Books Week?
2. What is the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution?
3. Who sponsors Banned Books Week?
