Banned Books Week of Action

October 1, 2023 @ 8:00 am - October 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm CDT

The freedom to read is under attack — let’s do something about it! On October 1-7, 2023, we’re asking everyone to take at least one action to help defend books from censorship and to stand up for the library staff and educators who make them available!

1) Thank a librarian!

2) Check out a banned book from your public library or purchase at your local bookstore!

3) Contact your state legislators to ask them to support the freedom to read in North Dakota!
