Responding to Library Materials Challenges

Defend the Freedom to Read: Reporting Challenges 

Tuesday, April 23, 2013, 2:00pm

Join ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom for this interactive webinar discussing challenges: formal requests that materials in libraries and schools be removed due to their content or appropriateness. We’ll discuss the current state of challenges – what’s causing controversy right now – and talk about ALA’s efforts to document as many challenges as possible in order to raise awareness about this fundamental intellectual freedom issue. Attendees will learn about the resources and support ALA can offer when libraries are preparing for or responding to challenges. Whether you’re a veteran intellectual freedom fighter or a newbie, this webinar will provide you with information and ideas to help advocate for the freedom to read in your community.
