Banned Books Week -- Day 3

The American Library Association (ALA) promotes intellectual freedom free of censorship, especially during Banned Books Week.

Read about the importance of the freedom to read and the role of censorship in this free society. The Supreme Court says there are some types of expression that really should be censored. Find the details here. And what about the children -- how can they be protected? Read what the ALA has to say here. What kinds of materials are censored most often? Find out here.

I am not going to try to stop you from reading. Learn which books are most frequently challenged and banned, and why. Read through the site and decide for yourself.
