The September Project is a grassroots effort to encourage events about freedom in all libraries in all countries during the month of September.

Since September 2004, public, academic, school, government, and special libraries around the world have organized September Project events. These events explore and exercise freedom, justice, democracy, and community and include book displays, community book readings, childrens’ art projects, film screenings, theatrical performances, civic deliberations, voter registrations, gardens, murals, panel discussions, and puppet shows. September Project events are free and open to the public.
