Sunshine Week: Join the Celebration

Much as we would like to, we cannot guarantee a solid week of sunshine.  But, March 14-20 is designated as Sunshine Week, a national initiative to open a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants include print, broadcast and online news media, civic groups, libraries, nonprofits, schools and others interested in the public's right to know. The annual observance takes place around March 16, the birthday of James Madison, who was the fourth President of the United States, a staunch advocate of openness in government, and is widely regarded as the "father of the U.S. Constitution."

If you'd like to join the celebration, then consider registering for the 5th Annual Sunshine Week webcast, sponsored by the American Association of Law Libraries and OpenTheGovernment.org.
