Finding Intellectual Freedom Friends
It’s going to happen. There will come a day when you’ll find yourself under attack. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you don’t stand alone? Wouldn’t it be nice to have some friends?
And turn that around. There will come a time when your natural allies have troubles of their own, and will also need some help.
All too often, we librarians stay in our silos, talking only to those who go to the same conferences, use the same acronyms, and share similar administrative structures. (This even happens within library associations.)
But there is not only strength, not only safety, in numbers. There is also the opportunity to learn more about the complex ecosystem of content creation and distribution, to have a far richer understanding of the world we live in.
To that end, consider joining us on Monday, March 7 for this fascinating webinar, featuring Charles Brownstein, Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and Emily Brock, a Publicist at Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR THIS WEBINAR IS 11:59 PM CENTRAL ON FRIDAY, MARCH 4th.

This webinar will share examples of potential partners and how collaborating with non library organizations can strengthen your message and increase your reach. Collaboration with like minded organizations can create renewed enthusiasm and new library supporters. Whether you’re designing programs and curriculum or looking for writers and speakers, you may want to consider friends who share your values but can offer different perspectives.
