This free webinar from PLA and the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) will shine a light on these and other barriers to successful participation in BBW and will focus on solutions to keep your library’s involvement fresh, relevant, and meaningful to your community.

How can intellectual freedom promote library and librarian advocacy?
