Description
Freedom to Read Week, Feb. 25 - March 3rd, "encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms."

Our current display in the Library entrance showcases some books that have been challenged in Canada as well as some books written on controversial topics.

Our table display contains banned or challenged books in Canada and the world with explanations as to why the books were banned or challenged.  Please feel free to check out any of these!  

To mark Freedom to Read Week, the Freedom of Expression committee, in partnership with BookCrossing.com, has come up with a fun and innovative challenge for Canadians. We call it "Free a Challenged Book."  Find out how you can release a challenged book!
