Map of Banned and Censored Books

Have you ever wondered if books have been banned in your area of the country? Check out this map of banned and censored books across the United States.

The Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary was one of the books banned in 2010. This is a good example of why the American Library Association, and librarians in general, support the freedom to read and celebrate Banned Books Week to support that freedom.

Map data comes from the American Library Association and the Kids' Right to Read Project.
