Freedom to Read Week

Freedom to Read Week in Canada concludes on March 4.

As  we celebrate, and defend, our Freedom to Read, it is important to remember that the Freedom to Read means nothing if people don’t choose to read.  Compared to most of human history and to most of the world today, we in Canada in the 21st Century are a very literate society.  We CAN read.  But do we?  We are not an illiterate society. But are we an aliterate society?

“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.”
