Judith F. Krug


Judith’s Reading Room was established in 2010 in memory of Judith F. Krug, first cousin to its founders. Judith was a librarian for over 40 years and served as the Director of the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom. A First Amendment purist, Judith achieved immortality in 1982 when she founded Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of literature that has been targeted for censorship in various communities. Every one of Judith’s Reading Room’s donations is a concrete reminder of Judith’s devotion to championing literature.
