Who We Are:
The Intellectual Freedom Committee of NCLA has been in operation for over thirty years. The Committee deals with issues such as censorship, media banning, privacy, confidentiality, and socio-economic factors that impact access to information and the right of the public to know.
What We Do:
Our activities include:
- Sponsoring programs and seminars at library conferences and colleges
- Overseeing the annual “Freedom to Read” Essay & Art Contest, which is open to all students ages 7 through 18 who attend school in Nassau County
- Discussing relevant issues relating to intellectual freedom as they impact libraries, librarians and the general public.
- Holding monthly membership meetings
We encourage you to join our Committee and help expand the range of our programs and activities.
