Banned Books Week has officially begun. As mentioned in our Friday's post, Banned Books Week is observed by libraries across the world. We celebrate one's freedom to read any book he or she chooses despite the content. No book should be banned or censored from others.
This list represents books that were challenged, banned, or restricted in 2014-2015 as reported in the Newsletter on Intellectual Freedom. Many of these titles were banned for sexual content, profanity, unsuitable material for teenagers, or violence. For more information on the titles click on me. Enjoy!

"The teen section is cool, because if you are bored you can play the XBox or board games. If you feel like reading they have great books-mystery, action, anime, etc."
