Freedom to Read Week is February 26 to March 3, 2012
Libraries play a critical role in defending the freedom to read. Defending intellectual freedom is one of the foundations of librarianship.
“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes the freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
Article 19 of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights: http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/
We have created a pathfinder page in the WRDSB Library Learning Commons website to direct you to resources about issues related to the freedom to read. Find suggestions for books, topic portals in the Virtual Library, and links to relevant websites.
