VIRTUAL PROGRAM: Intellectual Freedom & You — A Banned Books Week Webinar

September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email.**

Book bans are on the rise across the country as states seemingly compete to see who can place the most restrictions on free speech. As this latest wave of censorship activity continues to build, what is your role as a library user? In this interactive webinar during Banned Books Week, you’ll learn about why intellectual freedom is important and what you can do to support libraries, library workers, and free expression during these challenging times. Presented by Martin Garnar, PhD, director of the Amherst College Library, chair of the American Library Association’s (ALA) Intellectual Freedom Committee, and editor of the 10th edition of the Intellectual Freedom Manual
