"Every day new technologies and social networks are collecting our personal information and allowing advertisers, corporations, and the government to monitor and track our private lives.  Choose Privacy Week provides an ideal opportunity for libraries to create programming that helps library users make more informed choices about their privacy and to thoughtfully consider the importance of privacy rights in a digital age."
