Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read

September 25−October 2, 2010 is Banned Books Week. Promoted by the American Library Association every year, it is a movement that brings attention to the fact that even in countries such as the U.S., some communities are challenged with censorship.

In the past APP has helped promote this awareness and we will continue to do so. This year, we will introduce the motto Free People Read Freely ® from the Freedom to Read Foundation. Established 40 years ago, the FRF is a First Amendment legal defense organization affiliated with the American Library Association.
