The value of Intellectual Freedom has been an integral part of librarianship since the dawn of World War II. In recent years, we have seen an unprecedented surge of challenges to libraries across the country, primarily focused on resources concerning LGBTQ+ people and People of Color. This webinar will focus on the brief history and enduring purpose of the Library Bill of Rights, and a series of both preemptive and follow-up responses to library challenges.
Webinar Sponsors: The New York Library Association, SALS, Crandall Public Library, MVLS, UHLS
