SEIU member and librarian Bryan Jones produced Tennessee’s entry for the American Library Association’s “50 State Salute to Banned Books” while Teen Program Coordinator and SEIU member James McClanahan had an entry in the TLA’s Intellectual Freedom Committee contest.

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the value of free and open access to information.

Congratulations to Bryan, James, and the other SEIU members working at the Nashville Public Library for their advocacy of free speech.
