Most challenged books 2014

Another thing that comes out during #NationalLibraryWeek is the list of the top books that have been challenged across the country. Challenged books are those that some people feel need to be banned from their public or school libraries.

So what was the most challenged book in 2014? Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. (Don't worry, we have multiple copies of this wonderful book in our collections.)

For the top 10 challenged books of 2014, and reasons why they were challenged, read this article from the American Library Association, or check out this infographic:

Happy #NationalLibraryWeek!
