Let Freedom Read!
Each year, libraries and bookstores across the country observe Banned Books Week.
This year, Arlington County and Arlington Public Library became an official Book Sanctuary.
On September 26, the Arlington County Board adopted a Resolution in support of Arlington Public Library declaring, “Arlington County libraries as Book Sanctuaries, committed to protecting banned and challenged books and the right of the residents of Arlington to read the books they choose without fear of suppression.”
Banned Books Week encourages readers to examine challenged literary works, and promotes free and open access to ideas and information.
