Every year since 1982, the American Library Association (ALA) has sponsored "Banned Books Week." According to the ALA website, Banned Books Week "highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States." First Amendment Rights and intellectual freedom are the core of Banned Books Week.
MSU Libraries has created a new Research Guide to provide information and resources about Banned Books Week. Take time during the week of Sept. 26- Oct. 3 to visit the Banned Books Week Research Guide and reflect on your freedom that you can choose what you want to read!
