Freedom to Read Week on Vancouver Island

Monica Finn, Customer Services Librarian at the Vancouver Island Regional Library, wrote to us about the Freedom to Read Week displays she’s organizing for the VIRL:

I’m arranging a Freedom to Read Week display in each of the 39 branches of Vancouver Island Regional Library so I’ve already photographed a display which will be sent out with instructions.

I’m attaching the photo, hope it helps. The duotang in the photo will hold the first 12 pages of the 25-page PDF on challenged titles. I set that list out last year and found customers were interested and read through it. It’s an especially good list, I think, because it explains the reason for the challenge and the result.

Thanks so much to Monica for sending us the photo & information. The list she’s including is the one from the Freedom to Read Week web site at www.freedomtoread.ca/censorship_in_canada/challenged_books.asp. We’d love to get more photos of ways in which your library is celebrating Freedom to Read Week. Please send them to bclaifc [at] gmail.com.
