  • Read Banned Books

    Each year, thousands of books are challenged in schools, libraries, and communities across the globe. Books are challenged for various reasons, including offensive language, sexual content, LGBTQ+ themes, religious viewpoints, and violence. Banning and challenging books can occur in any setting, including public and school libraries, classrooms, and even entire communities. Banned book and censorship is not limited to the United States; censorship occurs worldwide.
