Freedom to Read Week is “an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.” It’s organized every year by The Book and Periodical Council, which is “the umbrella organization for writing and publishing in Canada,” and is endorsed and supported by the Canadian Library Association.
In recognition of Freedom to Read Week 2011, we offered lists of banned or challenged books which are available at RDC Library. Take a look – you might be surprised by some of the titles on the list. Or go one step further and borrow one!
Happy Freedom to Read Week!
