Free access to books banned in your area via the Digital Public Library of America

Here's a summary from the Smithsonian:

A new program aims to change that: Earlier this month, the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) launched the Banned Book Club, which provides users with free access to titles pulled from the shelves of local libraries.


The app uses “GPS-based geo-targeting” to stock virtual libraries across the country. After visiting to see a list of titles banned in their area, readers can download those books for free via the Palace e-reader app.
