Check out FTRF’s 2011 Krug Fund video and photos

Banned Books Week, Freedom to Read Foundation

The six recipients of 2011 Banned Books Week grants from the Freedom to Read Foundation’s Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund sent in clips from their many excellent activities – and we’ve compiled them in a new video just out today.

The video features a montage of activities from the “Living Banned Books” Read-Out by the North Dakota Library Association, the Free Speech Wall from the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, “Censorship=Slavery” at Bennett College, and events with the Springfield-Greene County (Mo.), Skokie (Ill.), and Bay County (Fla.) Public Libraries.

In addition, dozens of photos from all six recipients are posted on Flickr.

Great job to all the recipients, and many thanks to the supporters of the Judith Krug Fund for making this possible. Applications for 2012 grants will open this spring. If you would like to make a donation to the Judith Krug Fund, visit
