Banned Books Week Talk on 10/5/2023
Hello Oregon Library Community,
To create awareness during Banned Book Week, Multnomah County Library's Intellectual Freedom Committee is sponsoring a talk focused on the current wave of book banning hitting public libraries and ways to fight censorship. The talk is virtual and open to all; we do ask attendees to register.
If you know of people who might be interested, would you please share? I am attaching a flyer as well as the description below. Please let me know if you have any questions, and many thanks if you can help get the word out.
Why Your Voice Matters, Even as Censorship Increases
A webinar on Thursday, October 5, 6-7:30pm.
Follow the link above to register.
As censorship efforts continue across the country, what should we, the people, know? How can we ensure that our public libraries remain places of intellectual freedom? Kelly Jensen from Book Riot and John Chrastka from EveryLibrary will talk about public libraries, the current landscape of book bans, and the movement to push back. Hear stories of libraries defending the First Amendment and learn how you can support libraries.
We hope you are able to attend.
