Library Contest Marks Freedom To Read Week

The TNRD Library System is celebrating Freedom to Read Week with a draw for the chance to win a Chapters gift card. The contest is open to all TNRD library members.

Freedom To Read Week, which runs from February 21 to 27, is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

To enter the contest, drop by your local branch any time during the month of February to fill out a ballot with the title of a challenged book you have read or would like to read.

Entries are limited to one per person.
