Banned Books Bracelets from ALA

In the flat out "just too cool" category, get your Banned Books Bracelets from American Library Association (ALA). They come in two sizes and configurations.   Pointer from Free Range Librarian, keeper of all things ALA.

To help raise awareness that books continue to be challenged, ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom is selling bracelets featuring the covers of frequently challenged books. "Adult" and "kids" signify size, although the kids-size bracelet features children's titles, and the adult-size bracelet features adult titles.  

These bracelets were designed by Carolyn Forsman, jewelry designer and longtime supporter of the Freedom to Read Foundation.

Adult Bracelet ($18 for one; $15 each for two or more)

Each tile, or book cover, is 3/4" x 1"; the circumference of the bracelet is 6 3/8".

  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  • Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Annie on my Mind by Nancy Garden
  • Howl by Allen Ginsberg
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • I Read Banned Books

Kids Bracelet ($12 for one; $10 each for two or more)

Each tile, or book cover, is 5/8" x 1/2"; the circumference of the bracelet is 5 1/2".

  • Annie on my Mind by Nancy Garden
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • King & King by Linda de Haan and Stern Nijland
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • Blubber by Judy Blume
  • Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
  • I Read Banned Books


  • Order one of each bracelet for only $25!
  • All proceeds support the programs of the Office for Intellectual Freedom.
  • Bracelets ship for free!

If you have trouble reading this form with your browser, or if you prefer to order your bracelets offline, fax the ORDER FORM (PDF) to 312-280-4227, or mail to Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association, 50 East Huron Street, Chicago, IL 60611.

Thank you for your order!

I defiantly want one of these, in fact I will probably get several as gifts. Very cool indeed.
