Have you seen Invisible Man, The Face on the Milk Carton, or Where’s Waldo? These books have been targeted for removal from bookshelves across the country. Celebrate the freedom to read in your school, bookstore, or library during Banned Books Week with these promotional materials that serve to educate and inspire patrons to find and read a banned book.
Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. Use these bookmarks to help emphasize the importance of the First Amendment and the power of uncensored literature.
