Celebrate Freedom To Read Week
Freedom to Read Week, February 23 to March 1, 2014
, is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Marigold encourages Councils and member libraries to declare Freedom to Read Week.
 
Intellectual freedom enables people to make informed decisions about issues which have an impact on their daily lives. Life decisions are enhanced by ready access to reliable information in books, journals and other online or print resources. Freedom to read is celebrated by writers, readers, librarians, publishers, booksellers, teachers … and everyone. Find more information, resources and celebration ideas at:  www.freedomtoread.ca
 
Marigold supports and celebrates this annual event by declaring Freedom to Read Week and also by having a draw for Freedom to Read displays at our January Board meeting. In 2013, Marigold Board members from Rocky View County, Hanna and Strathmore won Freedom to Read displays for their libraries.
