#WPFreedomToRead is our year-long celebration of banned and challenged books leading up to our Banned Books Festival in September, 2023. Defend the First Amendment and celebrate the freedom to read freely with our various programs and activities. As Jay-Z famously said, “We change people through conversation, not through censorship.”

A few things taking place now are our #WPFreedomToRead reading challenge, a “Mugshot” photobooth, and a Banned Books quiz. Lookout for our upcoming book discussions for various ages featuring banned and challenged books, author talks, Banned Books trivia and bingo, and much more!
