Call for 2013 Challenges

Banned Books Week, Censorship, Challenge Reporting

OIF is working to finalize our numbers for 2013 challenges and our annual list of most frequently challenged books. We collect information for our challenge database from both media reports and those submitted by individuals and, while we know that many challenges are never reported, we strive to be as comprehensive as possible.

We would greatly appreciate if you could send us any information on challenges in your state or region that you are aware of from 2013. The final deadline for reporting 2013 challenges to OIF is Friday, February 28, 2014.

Challenges reported to ALA by individuals are kept confidential and we can cross-check your report with existing entries in the database to avoid duplications. You may report challenges by filling out and submitting the database form available in a variety of formats at If you have any questions at all, please contact

Many thanks for all of your help and support!
