Banned Books Week

Banned Book Week focuses on the books banned or challenged in schools or libraries around the world.

Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week.

Here are some of the banned books that you can borrow from the MRC.
