If your school newspaper reviews books or your library provides a book review column in the local newspaper, during Freedom to Read Week review famous banned or challenged books.

Write a press release announcing Freedom to Read Week and send it to local newspapers and radio and television stations. Here’s a sample press release.

Arrange for a photo in your local newspaper of school or library board members and staff or civic officials hanging a Freedom to Read poster or banner, unveiling a framed copy of the CLA Statement on Intellectual Freedom, or sitting in a mock jail for circulating banned books.
