Banned Book Week focuses on freedom to select books

Did you know the Bible is the book most often requested for removal from libraries? The American Library Association (ALA) keeps track of how many books are challenged and banned from library shelves and celebrates Banned Book Week to remind people they have the freedom to read. Homewood and Flossmoor libraries are celebrating Banned Book Week through Saturday with displays, videos and a contest.
