Freedom of Information Day

Freedom of Information Day

James Madison

Freedom of Information (FOI) Day is an annual event on or near March 16, the birthday of James Madison, who is widely regarded as the Father of the Constitution and as the foremost advocate for openness in government. Each year, the James Madison Award and the Eileen Cooke State & Local Madison Award are presented by the American Library Association Washington (DC) Office on Freedom of Information Day to recognize those individuals or groups that have championed, protected, and promoted public access to government information and the public’s right to know.

For more information on Freedom of Information Day or President James Madison, our librarians are more than happy to help. Call 563-326-7832 or visit our website.
