Freedom to Read Week is coming up

Freedom to Read Week doesn’t actually start until a week from now, but we’re celebrating a week early at SIS because the 22nd to 28th is our spring break. (You may recall I posted about Freedom to Read last year too) The CLA McGill Student Chapter is raising awareness by having a challenged books photo shoot (an idea we borrowed from the Freedom of Expression Committee). Anyone who comes to the SIS student lounge at lunch on Tuesday or Wednesday will have the opportunity to have their photo taken while reading a frequently challenged book, and everyone who participates will be entered in a draw to win a gift certificate for Chapters. Hopefully the winner will use it to buy a challenged book!  Brittany Trafford, our CLA Student Chapter secretary, has already taken a stack of appropriate books out of the library, so there will be plenty to choose from.

How is Freedom to Read being promoted at other schools and libraries? Leave a comment to let everyone know.
