Freedom to Read Week is This Week!
Posted on February 25, 2013
Freedom to Read Week is an annual event focused on the right of intellectual freedom through a variety of festivities, such as readings, discussions, and exhibitions across Canada. You can show your support by participating in a public event, getting involved through education, and/or ordering kits and posters.
"Freedom to read can never be taken for granted. Even in Canada, a free country by world standards, books and magazines are banned at the border. Schools and libraries are regularly asked to remove books and magazines from their shelves. Free expression on the Internet is under attack. Few of these stories make headlines, but they affect the right of Canadians to decide for themselves what they choose to read."
