UNCENSORED: Banned Books Week

Celebrate the freedom to read at DC Public Library

Uncensored Banned Books Week Logo


Banned Books Week 2019 will be held September 22 - 28, 2019

Join us for the  #UncensoredDC Banned Book Scavenger Hunt as we celebrate our theme of "Right to the City: Shaping and Reshaping the City." 

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.
