The slogan “Free people free libraries” was used nationally by libraries in 1976 for National Library Week. This was to commemorate the bi-centennial anniversary of the end of the American Revolution which resulted in the freedom of the United States from British control in 1776. This could be read as “free people free libraries” indicating that for people to be free they need access to the services and information libraries house, or “free libraries free people” which carries the same sentiment.
