Greenwich Library officials, yielding to free speech arguments, reversed their decision to bar a group from giving two lectures on Israeli-Palestinian relations at the library.

David Brownwood, a member of the library's Board of Trustees, said Wednesday that officials consulted with First Amendment lawyers and library management before deciding to permit the lectures to go forward.
