Top 100 Most Banned and Challenged Books: 2010-2019

This list has been compiled by the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF). The OIF estimates that "82 - 97%" of challenges remain unreported. OIF compiled this list of the most banned and challenged books from 2010-2019 by reviewing both the public and confidential censorship reports it received. Additional information about Challenge Reporting is provided by the American Library Association.
