Banned Books Week Oct 1st - Oct 7th celebrates the freedom to read and spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. Books are still being banned and challenged today. A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials from a collection in response to a formal or informal challenge. The American Library Association tracked 1,269 challenges to library, school, and university materials and services in 2022. Of the 2,571 unique titles that were challenged or banned in 2022, here are the top 13 most challenged. Learn more at ala.org/bbooks
