In response to the surge in book challenges, the American Library Association has designated every Monday of National Library Week as Right to Read Day, a day of action that encourages everyone to take concrete steps to fight back against censorship and protect and celebrate the right to read freely. Join us on #RightToToReadDay, and every day after, in fighting censorship and supporting libraries and the dedicated staff who make them work. Protect your freedom to read! You can find additional resources to amplify and support the Unite Against Book Bans campaign here.
