‘Freedom to Read Week’ occurs annually during the third week of February, encouraging reflection and thought about commitment to intellectual freedom.
This year, the public library is holding a banned book reading challenge. Participants can pick up their reading sheets at the James L. McIntyre Centennial Library or the North Branch and read as many banned/challenged books as possible from the list provided. Once they have completed as many of the books as they can before the end of the month, they can return the sheet by Feb. 28 to Centennial Library or North Branch and receive a ballot for each book read.
For further information, contact the North Branch at 705-759-5248.
