UNCENSORED: Banned Books Week
September 26 - October 1, 2016
Launched in 1982 in response to a surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries, Banned Books Week is the national book community's annual celebration of the freedom to read.
Every year, the DC Public Library joins hundreds of libraries and bookstores around the country in drawing attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books and hosting a variety of events.
This Year's Theme is Diversity.
