ALA has developed a variety of resources to help libraries reach out to their communities. 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.
A video on privacy will be available May 1. The trailer can be viewed now. Libraries might wish to host events featuring this video during Choose Privacy Week or to link or embed it on library websites or social networking sites.
The Choose Privacy Week Resource Guide gives librarians the information and resources they need to implement programs on privacy in their public, school, academic, and other libraries. The guide contains out-of-the-box activities, events, and other suggestions for educating and engaging library users on privacy issues. It is available for sale here.
ALA has created promotional materials such as: posters, bookmarks, and buttons that are available for sale here, and free web banners and graphics for your libraries website.
There are more free materials to help you available:
Civic engagement materials. A sample handout for communicating library privacy policies to users.
A downloadable word search, focusing on “Computers and Privacy.
Programming ideas and best practices for library programs on privacy.
Position paper and press materials that focus on key privacy issues today.
