Earlier this week, the American Library Association's (ALA) Office of Intellectual Freedom (OIF) announced the Top 100 Most Banned and Challenged Books of the Decade (2009-2019).
Since 1990, the OIF has been documenting attempts to ban book in libraries and schools. This list for 2009-2019 was compiled by reviewing both the public and confidental censorship reports it received.
OIF depends on libraries, schools, and other institutions to self-report instances of challenges or bans. OIF estimates that about 82-97% of challenges remain unreported, thus providing us with only a small snapshot of book challenges around the nation.
Find more information on OIF and reporting a challenge at this website.
