Recommend a Banned or Challenged Book

Celebrate the freedom to read!

In 2022, the American Library Association documented 1,269 demands to remove library books from shelves, twice as many as the year before.

NYSUT members across the state are seeing challenges to the books they recommend in their classrooms, and the titles that they include in school libraries.

We want to hear from you. Is there a banned or challenged book that you maintain in your class library? This year we will feature banned and challenged books in NYSUT United's "Check it Out" column.
