Banned Books Week is October 1st – 7th this year! Across the United States, libraries of all types are celebrating the freedom to read. One way you can celebrate is by joining us on Saturday, October 7th anytime between 10:00am and 2:00pm for the state-wide #LetFreedomRead Read-In event.
Another way you can celebrate Banned Books Week is by reading a challenged or banned book! Here are the top challenged books of 2022 and they are available for checkout from Haverhill Public Library and other libraries in the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium. This booklist is also available for download on our Booklists webpage.
