Banned Books Week
September 25th—October 2, 2010

Please join us in celebrating our freedom to read!

The past three years the ACLU of Oregon, OLA’s Intellectual Freedom Committee, OASL’s Intellectual Freedom Committee, and the Oregon Intellectual Freedom Clearinghouse have partnered together to promote Banned Books Week.  Last year, 260 libraries in 33 of Oregon’s 36 counties celebrated Banned Books Week through displays, activities, and lessons (see map below).  This effort was honored with the American Library Association Intellectual Freedom Roundtable Proquest-SIRSI State and Regional Intellectual Freedom Award at the 2009 ALA Annual Conference.

Here are some resources to help you plan your Banned Books Week activities:
