Leverett Public LibraryClosing Reception with Presentation by Laura Quilter, Copyright and Information Policy Librarian
Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020
6:30 p.m.

On January 1, 2019, works published in the U.S. in 1923 came out of copyright and are now free for public use and sharing. To celebrate, the UMass Amherst Libraries curated this traveling exhibit featuring some of these materials. This is the first time since 1998 that the public domain has grown substantially, unlocking movies, music, paintings, sculpture, books, poems, and scientific publications.

The exhibit will be on display in the Leverett Public Library through the month of February.
