ALA Plans Banned Books Week 2023

ALA unveiled the theme for Banned Books Week (Oct. 1–7, 2023): Let Freedom Read!

“As we’ve seen throughout National Library Week, as long as there are libraries, Americans’ right to read will not be overcome by censorship,” says ALA president Lessa Kanani’opua Pelayo-Lozada. “Our 2023 Banned Books Week theme—‘Let Freedom Read’—captures what’s at stake for our democracy: that the safety of our right to speak and think freely is directly in proportion to our right to read. ALA encourages libraries in every context to mark Banned Books Week by inviting other groups within their communities to celebrate and take action to protect our freedom to read all year long.”

To learn about prepping for the week and for more information, read the press release.
