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. 

This presentation is a collaboration with Tewksbury Public Library and other local libraries.
