Having good policies, procedures and conflict resolution skills will help you defend intellectual freedom in your library. This program will examine the essential components of key policies and will teach you effective strategies for responding to in-person complaints about library collections, programs, or displays.
Bring a lunch and enjoy networking before the program.
Pre-class assignment: fill out a request for reconsideration form at:
