“Free Speech and the Library” with Special Guest Jamie LaRue, Music by Jimmy Byrne, Live In-Person Service (and on Zoom)
Date(s) - 01/22/2023
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Third Street Center
The library has always had challenges–attempts by the public to restrict or remove access to some resources. But 2021-2022 saw the largest increase in censorship attempts in modern American history. Jamie LaRue, former director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, and current Executive Director of the Garfield County Public Library District, discusses why people censor, and how that plays out in Garfield County. Live Music by Jimmy Byrne. Live in-person service (and on Zoom).
IN-PERSON SAFETY: The Board has decided to require masks be worn for all in person services and events. We based this on the current surge of cases in the Tripledemic, and are following the recommendations of many public health authorities. We will be providing a box of masks at the door for those who do not have them, and will be paying close attention to trends and public health advisories. Thanks in advance for your cooperation. All of our services, with the exception of Fellowship Services, will also be streamed online each Sunday via Facebook and most Sunays, via Zoom. The Zoom link is the same each week (information below). Videos of our services will also be posted here on our website, on the Sermon Archive page.
Coffee hour will be held after Sunday services when Rev. Norris is present, provided that enough volunteers have been recruited to adequately prepare and execute this popular social event.
