Public Domain Party

On January 1st, 2019, hundreds of thousands of books, music, movies, and art that were first published in 1923 finally entered the public domain. They are now free of copyright restrictions and anyone can use or remix them for any purpose. To celebrate, Temple University Libraries is throwing a party! Please join us for an afternoon of food, drinks, crafts, entertainment, and more to celebrate the importance of the public domain. All are welcome.
