Visit our book display in the Dana Porter Library to learn more about Black Canadian authors and their works. While you're there, collect limited-edition buttons featuring images from the new Waterloo Digital Library that honour University of Waterloo's own Black History.
Our freedom to read can never be taken for granted. Our main Library's namesake, Dana Porter, himself stood for intellectual freedom, and struck down a ban on the book Fanny Hill in 1964 while serving as Chief Justice of the Ontario Court of Appeal.
Visit the book display in the Dana Porter and Davis Centre libraries to learn more about Freedom to Read Week and check out books in our collection which have been banned or challenged.
