Choose Privacy Week

May 02, 2018

Libraries are information hubs for their communities. They are also natural centers for learning and talking about information issues… including privacy. Panitza Library could offer you useful books related to the issue, included in its catalog

Choose Privacy Week takes place May 1-7 and is an ongoing program of the American Library Association.

Choose Privacy Week is the American Library Associations annual, week-long event that promotes the importance of individual privacy rights and celebrates libraries and librarians’ unique role in protecting privacy in the library and in society as a whole. The initiative encourages libraries to be champions of privacy rights in the digital age and highlights ways libraries can protect the privacy of their patrons and educate persons to think critically and make informed choices about their privacy.

The American Library Association (ALA) has developed their website as a clearinghouse for resources to improve privacy practices and programs to spark thought and discussion around privacy issues today.  We hope you will explore this site to learn more about what your library can do to become a privacy champion in your community, we have tools that can help!
