First observed in 1982, Banned Books Week reminds Americans not to take their democratic freedom to read for granted. The event is sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, the American Library Association, the Association of American Publishers, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the National Association of College Stores. It is endorsed by the Library of Congress Center for the Book.
Busse Library's collection includes a large number of Banned Books. Below is a small number of those titles.
