During the week of October 1-7, Auburn University Libraries will be celebrating Banned Books Week. Banned Books Week, organized by the American Library Association, highlights recent and historical book challenges and bans, in which books are targeted for removal from schools and libraries. By raising awareness of censorship, the week is intended to celebrate the freedom to read.

Visit Ralph Brown Draughon Library during the week to check out displays near the Research Help Desk on the first floor and in the Special Collections and Archives suite on the ground floor. On Wednesday, October 4, from 1-3 p.m., stop by to participate in or observe a public reading of favorite passages from banned or challenged books in the lobby of the Mell Classroom Building. For more information or questions, email Abigail Higgins at aeh0159@auburn.edu.
