Resolution 18-19_21 Banned Books Week.pdf
Summary: Banned Books Week, September 23-September 29, 2018, is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community: librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types, in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.

The District resolution highlights the value of free and open access to information.
