Banned Books Week


Celebrate your freedom to read with Banned Books Week!

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The Delaware City Library will be celebrating Banned Books Week through three programs: Super Hero Monday, Teen Night, and Speed Dating with a Banned Book
