Banned Books Week

The ALA's Banned Books Week is, sadly, here once again. Banning books is an attempt to prevent people from gaining knowledge, and, as such, deeply undercuts some of the core values of a free society.

To raise awareness this year, the American Library Association is hosting a Virtual Read-Out all this week. Particiapants can record and submit a two minute video of themselves reading from a banned book. For more information, check out their website, and to watch videos, you can go to their YouTube channel.
