Freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, freedom to read, programming, and safe places. Libraries are, as so often is the case, at the hinge point. During this webinar, we’ll learn foundational principals of free speech and then discuss whether and how libraries can find a balance between ethical aspirations and legal limitations when it comes to serving the public.

“Closer to Free”
Everybody wants to live, like they want to live
And everybody wants to love, like they want to love
And everybody wants to be, closer to free
(the BoDeans, 1993)

This webinar is being presented by the legal team representing libraries at Seter & Vander Wall, P.C.: Kim Seter, Elizabeth Dauer, and Cameron Richards

This free 60-minute webinar is being hosted by the Colorado State Library, and may be of interest to library administrators, trustees, staff, and volunteers.
