"A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others. Due to the commitment of librarians, teachers, parents, students and other concerned citizens, most challenges are unsuccessful and most materials are retained in the school curriculum or library collection." - ALA
Banned Books Week is a week set aside to celebrate the freedom that we have to read as we please. The American Library Association and the Office of Intellectual Freedom have provided many activities and resources to educate the public in general on the matter of censoring books and the public access to that information.
