Dozens of state/regional chapters pass resolutions honoring Judith Krug

General Interest, Office for Intellectual Freedom

At least 35 ALA state and regional chapters have passed resolutions saluting “the life and legacy” of Judith F. Krug, founding director of the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom. The resolutions detail her extensive accomplishments and multitude of awards, and make special note of the “practical assistance and unstinting support” Judith provided to librarians facing challenges to intellectual freedom in their communities.

For a list of the chapters honoring Judith, see here.

A sample resolution is available on our website.
