Celebrate the Freedom to Read!
The reading and writing community honors the the freedom to read whatever you wish with the annual celebration of Banned Books Week. The New York Society Library is proud to support intellectual freedom and reading choice for readers of all ages. The books pictured below are among the most challenged books of the last decade. Perhaps one or more is a favorite of yours, or perhaps there is a book on the list you would never consider reading. That's the beauty of intellectual freedom - it's your choice to pick up a book or leave it on the shelf. Happy Reading!
