What is banned books week?

Banned Books Week celebrates your freedom to read!

Libraries across the nation support the right of every individual to both seek and receive information from all points of view.

San Jose Public Library provides free access to all expressions of ideas through which any and all sides of a question, cause or movement may be explored.

Why do people ban books?

There are constant efforts to suppress writing and silence writers.

When people feel books have content that is in conflict with their personal morals and values they remove these books from the shelves of stores and libraries.

The freedom to read does not include the freedom to choose for others!
