Worcester Public Library – Let Freedom Read! Statewide Read-in

October 3, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT


Head to the Worcester Public Library for Let Freedom Read, a statewide read-in to celebrate the freedom to read on Tuesday, October 3 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Main Library. According to the American Library Association, libraries across the nation and here in Massachusetts have experienced a surge in the number of book challenges and attempts to restrict access. Everyone is welcome to find a good read from their library and join the celebration. We’ll have a comfy chair and a selection of banned books for you to choose from in the First Floor Ellipse area.
