Every year, many institutions prepare promotional materials that celebrate the freedom to read, and promote Banned Books Week.
To help spread the word about banned books, and Banned Books Week in particular, we’ve put together most relevant and meaningful images.
Feel free to share them (linking back to original sources) every time you see someone is trying to limit people’s right to read freely.
Make sure to visit a special page of American Library Association’s website. You will find here ideas and resources on how you can participate in the annual celebration of the freedom to read.
To increase the awareness about book censorship, we also prepared the list of banned books infographics and charts.
