Presentation to the Pennsylvania Library Association

Yesterday in Erie, I spoke to members of the Pennsylvania Library Association about Pennsylvania’s Right-to-Know Law.

Many thanks to PaLA for the invitation. I very much appreciate it and loved having the chance to speak to librarians. When my family lived in Christiana, PA, in the 1980s, the wonderful Moores Memorial Library was right down the street from my house. (The library has since moved to downtown Christiana.) Today, my wife and I are regular users of the Cumberland County Library System.

Here’s the PowerPoint presentation I used:
