Banned Books Week 22nd – 28th September 2019

16 September 2019 Share

Banned Books Week is happening 22nd – 28th September and there are resources, including a school toolkit on the website.   

Banned Books week is an ideal time to talk to students about misinformation and ethics.

It is also a fun display theme. There are ideas here:

Banned Book Display

·         Guess reason for objection

·         (Can also compare this to most popular reads eg Harry Potter on both!)

·         Police / danger tape

·         Notices ‘Do not read this book’  ‘Danger – reading makes you think’

Books have been banned for various reasons throughout history, mainly as a control over citizens. In America, parents often challenge school stock, and although this happens less in the UK, all schools should have in place a stock selection policy setting out who is responsible for selecting stock (the Librarian) and the criteria followed.
