The Labyrinth is back!

Last November  the Rebecca Crown Library welcomed Dominican’s very own labyrinth to reside in the atrium for two weeks.

Fortunately, the Labyrinth is back in the Rebecca Crown Library! The labyrinth will remain there for two weeks and during during this allotted time, visitors of Dominican University are welcome to walk the labyrinth as they please, as many times as they please.  Fun fact: it takes approximately 121 steps to complete.  The one request made, is to please remove your shoes prior to entering the labyrinth.

We welcome you to take this opportunity to walk the labyrinth, whether it be your first, second or even tenth time! The labyrinth is here for you! Enjoy!

The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Censorship, and the Selection of Library Materials for Children and Young Adults
on

February 27th, 2008
4:00 pm-5:30 pm
Lewis Lounge

Do you believe that CIPA challenges the First Amendment and our Intellectual Freedom? Does that freedom extend to minors? Who is responsible for keeping tabs on what children are viewing on public computers? Do librarians inadvertently censor materials in their selection process for library materials for children and young adults? Please join us for a discussion on how CIPA and censorship affects what we read and what we may be able view on any public or school computer.

The discussion panel will include:
Deirdre Brennan, Director, Oak Park Public Library
Janice Del Negro, Assistant Professor, Dominican University
Andrew Medlar, Youth Materials Specialist, Chicago Public Library
