This event is observed by libraries (like us) around the country to remind every citizen that intellectual freedom should never be discarded because somebody doesn't like what an author has written. BBW stresses the importance of making available all different kinds of opinions and viewpoints to the community without fear of censorship or intimidation , as well as protecting the rights of all to choose and make their own decisions.
