We've Signed The Declaration!

Every day, in countless communities across our nation and the world, millions of children, students and adults use libraries to learn, grow and achieve their dreams. In addition to a vast array of books, computers and other resources, library users benefit from the expert teaching and guidance of librarians and library staff to help expand their minds and open new worlds. We declare and affirm our right to quality libraries - public, school, academic, and more - and urge you to show your support by signing your name to this Declaration for the Right to Libraries.  Click here to sign.
