The Vega Insider - Aug. 2023
Libraries Celebrate the Freedom To Read
As partners with the Freedom to Read Foundation, we support “the right of libraries to collect – and individuals to access – information.”

Libraries and the First Amendment are the topic of discussion in this episode of the Library Leadership podcast, featuring Deborah Caldwell-Stone, Director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom and Executive Director of the Freedom to Read Foundation. As an attorney, she shares insightful information on this issue from a legal perspective.

Some libraries are creatively raising awareness about books that have been challenged. Mid-Hudson Library System made it easier for patrons to find these titles by showcasing them with Vega Discover.

TikTok Tips for Library Marketing
We often hear from public libraries about the desire to spark engagement with new (and younger) members of their communities. Factoring in time and budget constraints, library staff like Emily Jackson (LibraryTok influencer and Creative Marketing Manager for Dallas Public Library) are embracing a fun, free and easy way to generate excitement: TikTok.

We were fortunate to have Emily host a webinar with us that highlights the value of using this trending social media platform to showcase your library’s people, services, and collections.

Thank you, Emily, for such an inspiring, informative, and entertaining session!
