July, 18th. Honest John’s at 488 Selden St, 6-9 P.M.
This time the salon topic will be “Direct Action and Our Local Community.” As our economic and social landscape continues to change it becomes necessary for librarians to become advocates and activists for intellectual freedom, access to information, social justice, and education. The beginning questions that this salon will address are: What role to librarians and other library workers play in their own community? When is it appropriate to step in and DO something? When is it necessary?
The goal of this salon is to discuss local issues, the politics behind direct action and librarianship. This event is free and open to the public. You do not necessarily have to be an LIS student to attend. All are welcome.
