Banned Books Week Scavenger Hunt: Oct. 2-8, 2023

The American Library Association's Banned Books Week is a national event that raises awareness of censorship and celebrates the freedom to read. In 2022, the ALA tracked the highest number of censorship reports since it began compiling data more than 20 years ago! This week you can learn more about book banning incidents and polish your library research skills by participating in the Law Library's Banned Books Week Scavenger Hunt. Pick up an entry form at the circulation desk!

Students, faculty, and members of the public who are working off-campus may visit the library's "Remote Services" page for help with legal research from home or away.
