It’s Banned Books WeeK
September 26 to October 3 is Banned Books Week – the only national celebration of the freedom to read.
The American Library Association and other sponsors have a website with information about the week, including a map of recent book bans and challenges in the United States and suggestions for event ideas.
Get your classroom reading by visiting NEA.org for a list of websites with book lists for elementary students through young adults.
Visit the online library Bookshare for digital books for students with difficulties reading printed text because of blindness, visual impairment, color blindness, certain learning disabilities, or certain mobility problems. A free membership with Bookshare will enable you to download two free e-text readers.
