?Poster collage of employees reading challenged titles

In support of Freedom to Read Week, Feb. 27 to March 2, the library asked Georgian employees to submit photos of themselves or their departments reading challenged titles.

The library staff would like to express their thanks to all who participated. The images were compiled into a poster, created by Liz Jarnicki, library staff member and Graphic Design student.

The poster signifies our fundamental freedom of expression and our right to choose what we read – a fundamental right for all Canadians.

“A good library has something to offend everyone,” commented Gail Hussey, Library Technician.

In an odd bit of synchronicity, the student featured in the poster was working on an assignment related to the fundamental freedoms guaranteed to Canadians under the Charter at the time the photo was taken.

If you would like a copy of the poster, email Gail Hussey or call ext. 1744.
