Freedom to Read Week 2018
What do Harry Potter, Captain Underpants, and the dictionary all have in common? They’ve all been banned in various libraries and schools. This week is national Freedom to Read Week, which focuses on intellectual freedom, guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Freedom to Read Week does this by highlighting books that have been banned and challenged in various places. We have lots of books in our collection which have been challenged or banned in other places. Come see if you can figure out why they’ve been controversial. Maybe you’ll even find a banned book that you want to read.
