If you are going to be attending ALA later this month, I encourage you to
attend the *Intellectual Freedom Round Table Awards Reception & Member
Saturday evening, 6/24/17.

There will be refreshments, drinks available for purchase, and networking
opportunities galore. The event is open to all: you don't have to be a
member of the ALA Intellectual Freedom Round Table.

During this reception, the Gerald Hodges Intellectual Freedom Chapter
Relations Award <http://www.ala.org/ifrt/gerald-hodges> will be presented
to the Oregon Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee for our
committee's work on the Tuesday Topics project. Tuesday Topics is a monthly
series of listserv posts organized by the committee that covers topics with
intellectual freedom implications for libraries of all types (past Tuesday
Topics can be found on the IFC’s Intellectual Freedom Resources
<http://www.olaweb.org/if-resources> page.)
