It’s Banned Books Week!

Timberland Library Banned Books

October 1 – 7 is Banned Books Week. To help spread awareness of frequently banned young adult books, I’ve created a LibraryThing book widget of titles. Feel free to copy the code below and add this widget to your own web pages.

Titles were gathered from the following sources (and a few other lists):

If you’d like to use this book display widget, just copy the code below and add it to your own web pages. Please be sure to give credit to the sources above or link back here for those sources.

Also, check out this link to a post about the DPLA Banned Books App. It provides free access to books that have been banned by your local libraries. (If your local libraries haven’t banned anything, you won’t see any books, lucky you!)

Handy Tip:

The links in the widget go back to LibraryThing. If you’re using the Chrome browser and have installed the Library Extension, you’ll get links back to your catalog. This works in GoodReads and Amazon too. This post has more info on adult book lists and that Chrome Extension: Powerful Book Lists & Handy Library Extension for Chrome
