Banned Books Week is September 26- October 2, 2021!

Join DePaul University Library for an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.

Since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to or view.
