Honor Champions of Intellectual Freedom!
03/13/2017

Do you know your way around the School Library Bill of Rights? As an interpretation of ALA’s Library Bill of Rights, this document, revised last in 2014, spells out our responsibilities to our patrons – our students.  Find the statement at the following link:

Do you know a school librarian who “walks the talk” and has been a champion for intellectual freedom for their students by providing resources and services that create and sustain an atmosphere of free inquiry? Do you know a school librarian who, through resources, programming, and educational processes, enables students and teachers to experience the free and robust debate characteristic of a democratic society?

Then nominate them ASAP for OELMA’s Intellectual Freedom Award – see the description at the following link:

Deadline is April 3rd, so don’t wait!
