Operation 451: Mission 1

September 26, 2017

It’s here…the last mission for Operation 451. Mission 1 comes at a timely point during a national discussion of the true meaning free speech and the First Amendment. And it also coincides with Banned Books Week!

The First Amendment is key to a free society, and key to the ethics we uphold in libraries.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

We have some ideas on the Operation 451 website, big and small, so that anyone working in a library can accomplish at least one of these to support freedom of speech and the press in the many ways that plays out in our communities every day.

Go do some good.
