Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It highlights the value of free and open access to information. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. While books have been and continue to be banned, part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available.
