Censorship is everywhere.

From TV to radio to general advertising, censorship limits what information is available.

But, between February 26 and March 3, there are a few places where you won't see any censorship.

The Marigold Library System, which runs the Okotoks Public Library, is declaring that week as "Freedom to Read Week".

The week is a national event that reaffirms the commitment to intellectual freedom in Canada and works to ensure that the right to find information is not violated.

Dawn Perrault with the Okotoks Library says the week tells an important message.

"It puts the word out there that people do have the freedom to read," she says. "We'll be asking people what censorship means to them and whether it should be present in the library and in every day life."

The library will have a display of books available to read that may have been banned or challenged by other libraries.

Some of the titles include John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn" and Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird."

"It's important to realize that [the books] are written in that time period, especially with To Kill a Mockingbird. The book is set in that time and that's actually what was happening in that time. It brings awareness to people about what was going on. Who are we to say whether you can or can't read something?" Says Perrault.

"Everybody has the right to read what they want and to receive that information without restriction."
