Freedom to Read Week

February 24 to March 2 is Freedom to Read Week.  This annual event is organized by the Book and Periodical Council’s Freedom of Expression Committee.  The aim of this event is to encourage “Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms” (Freedom to Read Week, 2019).

In recognition of this event, the Dr. John Archer Library has created a display of challenged books that can be found in our collection.  Some of them may surprise you!
