Closer to Free: Aspirations v. Legal Limitations in Public Libraries

May 19 @ 12:00 pm MT

Join us on Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 12:00 pm MT for Closer to Free: Aspirations v. Legal Limitations in Public Libraries.

Freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, freedom to read, programming, and safe places. Libraries are, as so often is the case, at the hinge point. During this webinar, we’ll learn foundational principals of free speech and then discuss whether and how libraries can find a balance between ethical aspirations and legal limitations when it comes to serving the public.

“Closer to Free”
Everybody wants to live,
like they want to live
And everybody wants to love,
like they want to love
And everybody wants to be,
closer to free
(the BoDeans, 1993)
