Freedom to Read Week is a yearly event dedicated to promoting intellectual freedom and the freedom to read. According to the event’s official website, it “encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.” This year, Freedom to Read Week is being celebrated from February 26th to March 4th.
As a staunch member of the library community, the Law Society Library is always excited to celebrate this week. We forthrightly call on all members of the Law Society to mark this occasion and stand with the library community to promote intellectual freedom.
