FTRF celebrates its 46th birthday!

Posted By Administration, Thursday, November 19, 2015

Birthday shout-out from Knowledge Quest, the Journal of the American Association of School Librarians.

 

Are you familiar with the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF)? On November 20, 2015, FTRF will celebrate its 46th birthday. Although holding many of the same ideals as the American Library Association, FTRF was founded in 1969 as a discrete organization to protect the First Amendment rights of library users to read and to assist librarians whose jobs were in jeopardy because of their defense of free speech. Although legal action has been a strong tool for FTRF, in recent years, it has increased its focus on educating librarians and the public about the strong connection between the First Amendment and libraries and the need to fight censorship (FTRF Foundation Activities).

Freedom to Read has joined #GivingTuesday!

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, November 17, 2015

This year, on Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Freedom to Read Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.

 

Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.  Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.  We invite you to join the movement and to help get out and give this December 1.  Some ideas include:

 

  • Get your workplace and local government officials, nonprofits, and small businesses involved in #GivingTuesday.  Encourage them to officially sign up as partners on the website (www.givingtuesday.org)

 

  • Help spread the word about #GivingTuesday.  Use the hashtag #GivingTuesday to talk about charity and the causes and organizations you support.

 

The Judith F. Krug Fund

The Gordon M. Conable

 

There are many ways to get involved in #GivingTuesday.  We encourage you to join the movement and make a difference!
