Intellectual Freedom and the Law: Social Media, First Amendment Audits, and the Library as a Public Forum

Presenter:

  • Theresa Chmara, General Counsel, Freedom to Read Foundation

Moderator:

  • Joyce Hagen-McIntosh, Consultant, Freedom to Read Foundation, Chicago, IL

Do you know what the law says about the public library’s ability to regulate and moderate comments and posts on the library’s social media sites? Can “First Amendment Auditors” film library patrons with impunity? This program will explore the current case law addressing public libraries’ responsibilities with respect to moderating social media as well as the ability of libraries to manage and regulate photography and recording activities inside the library. Learn how to minimize your library’s exposure to litigation if your library has a social media site open to the public or if an individual claims a right to film inside the library. There will be time set aside for your questions about these topics and other questions concerning intellectual freedom and the law.

This webinar is complimentary to FTRF members.  There is a $25 registration fee for non-FTRF members.  Non-members are invited to join FTRF to take advantage of this members only benefit.  Learn more.
