Privacy Week

Welcome to Choose Privacy Week!

Choose Privacy Week will take place May 1-7, 2014 and is an ongoing program of the American Library Association.

Choose Privacy Week is an initiative that invites library users into a national conversation about privacy rights in a digital age. The campaign gives libraries the tools they need to educate and engage users, and gives citizens the resources to think critically and make more informed choices about their privacy.

The American Library Association (ALA) has developed a variety of resources to help libraries reach out to their communities. We hope you will explore this site to learn more about what your community can do to spark thought and discussion around privacy issues today. Whether you are considering creating a display, sponsoring a contest, hosting a program or workshop, or moderating a community dialogue about privacy, we have tools that can help!

Wondering where to start? Check out some of our materials for libraries here.
