ALA Publishes Content for National Library Week

It’s National Library Week, and ALA released its Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2022 list (actually, Top 13 this year) and its 2023 State of America’s Libraries Report, “which tells the story of how libraries are innovating and adapting to improve the well-being of their communities in the midst of censorship challenges.”

ALA shares, “In 2022, ALA tracked the highest number of censorship reports since the association began compiling data about library censorship more than 20 years ago. ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom tracked 2,571 unique titles targeted for censorship, a 38% increase from the 1,858 unique titles targeted in 2021. Most of the targeted books were written by or about members of the LGBTQIA+ community and people of color.”

For more information, read the press release.
