Champion the Right to Read - Lunch & Learn

Since 1891, the Michigan Library Association has led the advancement of all libraries through advocacy, education and engagement. Throughout their history, the association continues to serve as champions of access and they stand strong to protect the right to read, and promote intellectual freedom as a core value of the library profession and a basic right in our democratic society.

Their goal through the MI Right to Read (www.mirighttoread.com) initiative is to protect Michiganders’ right to read by proposing pro-active legislation that protects First Amendment Rights, opposing attempts to ban books from Michigan libraries; educate the public about the right to read; and ensure that librarians across Michigan will be entrusted to continue to do their jobs and serve the needs of all individuals and communities.

Learn more about the MI Right to Read initiative at this Lunch and Learn event.
