Webinar: Fighting for the First

Originally presented August 16, 2023

Censorship and book bans are a singular challenge facing public libraries. Attempts to ban or censor materials come in many shapes and from several different directions. When they originate with concerned parents or community members, it is important to engage in difficult conversations. But when they become politicized or performative, it is necessary to understand that an agenda may drive them. Knowing the differences - and being properly equipped with digital tools, skills, and policy frameworks - is key. 

Join John Chrastka, Founder and Executive Director of EveryLibrary, the national political action committee for libraries, for a session on practical, actionable tips to protect your library and your community.
