Intellectual Freedom: Meeting Rooms, Exhibit Spaces & Programs

This event is sponsored by SU Libraries and Wicomico County Public Library.

Meeting Rooms, Exhibits Spaces & Programs

  • Our belief in access and the free exchange of information extends beyond our materials to our spaces and programs. Policies and guidelines for meeting rooms, exhibits, and programs should be inclusive and protect the intellectual freedom of community members. The Library Bill of Rights states, “Libraries which make exhibit spaces and meeting rooms available to the public they serve should make such facilities available on an equitable basis, regardless of the beliefs or affiliations of individuals or groups requesting their use.”
  • The resources on this page provide information from the ALA. They also provide context surrounding the controversial 2018 amendment, now rescinded, to “Meeting Rooms: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights.”
