Choose Privacy Week begins on May 2, 2010! If your community would like to participate but hasn’t planned anything yet, it’s not too late! ALA is offering numerous resources for you to take part, including sample lesson plans now available for free download.
Four sample school library lessons from the Choose Privacy Week Resource Guide are now freely available for download! Click here to download a PDF containing sample lesson plans for grades K-2, grades 3-5, grades 6-8, and grades 9-12.
In addition, ALA will release a fantastic video on May 1st, just in time for Choose Privacy Week! We hope that libraries and others will share the video online and host events to discuss the issues it raises. In addition to “man on the street” interviews, the finished video will feature individuals like Neil Gaiman, Cory Doctorow, and ALA President Camila Alire discussing privacy.

Finally, please let us know how you will be celebrating Choose Privacy Week in your community! Visit our Events page for ideas on what’s happening elsewhere around the country, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your own ideas and success.
