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.
