It’s Banned Books Week—the annual celebration of the freedom to read! Books, resources, and programs are still being threatened with censorship in libraries and schools. Thankfully, library workers, educators, and readers are rallying together year-round to protect their communities’ First Amendment rights.
Take a stand against censorship with these cool shirts, mugs, and more from the American Library Association. The best part? All sales support ALA’s work defending and promoting the right to access information.
