Hooray for Freedom! Policy Guidance

The resources listed below were developed out of our experience and our librarian-ing the topics. We aren’t lawyers! We wanted to make references for library trustees, staff, and directors from any size libraries to make good decisions. If you feel like you might be getting yourself into hot messes with your library policies, reach out to your library system (3Rs, Public System, or BOCES SLS) for some legal help.
