Each year, the third week in September is traditionally Banned Books Week – an entire week celebrating the freedom in America to read whatever we want, no matter what other individuals or groups may prefer. The majority of banned and challenged booklists are usually made up of fiction titles or works for children, so for the 2013 Banned Books Week observance, we thought we would shine a line on some of the adult non-fiction titles that have been banned or challenged at libraries somewhere in the United States over the past few decades.
All books in this list which are owned by Lincoln City Libraries are hotlinked to their entries in our library catalog, so that you may check on their current availability. Some titles not owned by the libraries are included in this list due to their classic nature, or their position as part of a series. If you see a title on this list that is not hotlinked to our collection, please consider ordering it through our Interlibrary Loan department.
