Don't Read These Books!!!

Just kidding!  September 24-30, 2017 is Banned and Challenged Books Week.  It is a time when we celebrate our freedom to read.  The American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom compiles a list every year of the most challenged books, using media reports of public challenges and and censorship reports that have been submitted to the office.  You can find the list here along with other lists of challenged books.
