Do you know the Forbidden Library?

Probably, most of us didn't know that such a thing as Forbidden Library exists! In this library, you can search and find books that are banned for various reasons.

In news papers, I have come across several incident where a book is banned for public reading mostly because some ethnic group has felt offended by a sentence or a word contained in that book.

But, browsing through the Forbidden Library, I was shocked to find so many books that are either challenged or banned. The books are listed by title and by author.

Do you know that "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was banned in China in 1931? We are also allowed to purchase the books that are in the banned list.

But then it is not banned-right?

The website sites American Library Association as one its resources.
