Freedom to Read Week

February 18 - 24, 2024

Freedom to Read Week is an annual event encouraging Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, a guarantee under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Freedom to Read week allows Canadians to focus on intellectual freedom issues and how they affect their community, their province or territory, our country, and countries worldwide.

You can celebrate this important literary week with Oshawa Public Libraries by browsing our collections for your next read.

We have curated a few book lists containing titles that have, at one point, drawn complaints or have been requested to be pulled out of public libraries for "objectionable" content.
