Freedom to Read Week

I want to start by re-posting Jeff Yasinchuk's reminder about Freedom to Read Week.  Thanks Jeff!

Hi All!

Just a reminder that next week: February 25-March 2 is Freedom to Read Week. has great ideas to celebrate including list of challenged books in Canada.

We've started a group on the BCTLA Ning if you want to share ideas to celebrate the fight against censorship in Canada.

Have a great week!


As I watch the Academy Awards I'm reminded of a wonderful film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.   This beautiful silent film won Best Animated Short Film in 2011.  The movie takes place in a magical library full of flying books.  I highly recommend it as it celebrates the important role books play in the lives of its characters.  Last year a book based on the film was created.
