NYC public libraries take a stand against 'banned books challenge'
New York City's three public library systems are taking a stand against censorship with a new "banned books challenge."
The Brooklyn Public Library, the Queens Library and the New York Public Library are launching this challenge as a statement against the growing national trend of book bans.
The American Library Association says 729 books were challenged at libraries and schools in 2021. The books focused on race, LGBTQ+ issues, religion and history.
