Did you know that in 2016, the Office for Intellectual Freedom recorded 323 reports challenging the content and language of children's books deeming them inappropriate and unsuitable for children's age groups?

This year, take the time to celebrate Banned Books Week from September 24- September 30th in your classroom or library. Everyone should be able to enjoy the freedom to read, for knowledge truly is power.
