October 1st-7th is Banned Books Week. This year's theme is Let Freedom Read. In June, Illinois became the first state to pass anti-book banning legislation: "House Bill 2789 declares it to be the policy of Illinois to 'encourage and protect the freedom of libraries and library systems to acquire materials without external limitation and to be protected against attempts to ban, remove, or otherwise restrict access to books or other materials.'"
