Let Freedom Read Day

Supporting the freedom to read during Banned Books Week is about more than good will – it’s about action.

On October 7, 2023, Let Freedom Read Day, the Banned Books Week Coalition is asking everyone to take at least one action to help defend books from censorship and to stand up for the library staff, educators, writers, publishers and booksellers who make them available.

Here’s how you can take action next week on Let Freedom Read Day and beyond:

And don’t forget: Censorship won’t stop just because Banned Books Week does — you can take action any day of the year.
