Presenting "IFRT Reads"

[Children's  Right to Read from a Teachers Perspective IFRT Reads] <http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MzAzODc1JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzY0NDgxMDQ/index.html>

Expand the depth of your knowledge on intellectual freedom issues with "IFRT Reads." We'll have asynchronous and live discussions on various intellectual freedom topics where members can ask questions, pose alternative views, and offer their experiences. Join us for our first reading topic: children's right to read. IFRT members can find the readings, follow the discussion, and register for live events on ALA Connect.

Our first live event will be facilitated by authors Danielle Hartsfield<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MzAzODc1JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzY0NDgxMDU/index.html> and Sue Kimmel<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MzAzODc1JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzY0NDgxMDY/index.html> on May 13th.

Join the IFRT Reads Community<http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MzAzODc1JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzY0NDgxMDQ/index.html>

Volunteering for a committee with IFRT will be one of the most rewarding things you’ve ever done. There are several to choose from, and each will give you something remarkable to learn. You will also work with some of the best people. Read through the rundown of each committee. Fill out the volunteer form before June 1, 2020 to be considered for an appointment by chair-elect, Wanda Huffaker.

An Historical and Future Perspective of IFRT

[Census 2020] <http://ala.informz.net/z/cjUucD9taT05MzAzODc1JnA9MSZ1PTEwMjQwMzIxNTgmbGk9NzY0NDgxMjM/index.html>

I’ve been contemplating being involved in ALA this year as we are concerned with the effects Covid-19 has had on all of us. Not the least of which is the cancellation of ALA Annual 2020. This is in the midst of organizational revisions that are yet to be finalized or accepted. Our libraries are closed, many of us have worked from home, the tasks have changed, some worry about their jobs. Working on an ALA committee may seem like such a superfluous task to add to life right now, in the scheme of things.
