The Lawyers for Libraries institutes are intended for library trustees and attorneys who work with libraries. Librarians also are encouraged to attend, as long as they attend with their library attorney. The workshop is designed to teach participants how to create and implement policies that are in accordance with the law, and that protect the rights of library users, in the following areas:

  • Attempts to remove material from library collections or shelves;
  • Meeting rooms, display cases, literature distribution, and bulletin boards;
  • Privacy and confidentiality of library user records, including what you need to know about the Patriot Act;
  • Library computers, filtering, and 2.0 technologies; and
  • Patron use and behavior policies.

Participants are eligible for CLE credits for this all-day program. The cost is $395.00 for one attendee; $745.00 for 2.
