Applications are now open for Library Freedom Institute!

During this pandemic, it's especially important for library workers to build community centered around our ethics and values. That's why I am excited to share that applications are now open for the fourth cohort of Library Freedom Institute.

Library Freedom Institute is a free, (mostly) online, four-month long training program to turn librarians into Privacy Advocates. Through weekly lectures from experts in the privacy world and collaborative work, participants learn practical skills and build community together. At the close of the course, participants become part of the Library Freedom Project community, and continue doing privacy work with an incredible group of peers across North America.

Library Freedom Institute is free of cost, a five-hour commitment per week (including 1-2 hours in real time), and is mostly online with one in-person weekend component. The in-person weekend component is fully-funded and is likely to be postponed due to COVID-19 Pandemic, but will happen at some point in the future.

Application materials are due on June 1 and are available on Library Freedom's website:

Be well,
