Come fill your toolkit with strategies to support intellectual freedom for those you serve with jail or prison outreach. Learn about the realities of correctional censorship, how to develop a policy to answer the toughest challenges, and how you can be a powerful and articulate advocate for your community.
In this workshop, public and correctional librarians will practice real, tested strategies and techniques to help them advocate for intellectual freedom in seriously unfree spaces. Jails and prisons don't always have clear or consistent policies, so through this workshop staff will practice advocacy skills honed for an audience of skeptical wardens, sheriffs, and other correctional staff. They will see and discuss examples of real-life censorship decisions.
