Libraries Change Lives — Or Do They?

Do you agree with the above graphic?

The Declaration to the Right to Libraries is the cornerstone document of the American Library Association, and it says all of these things. The Declaration to the Right to Libraries hope to create sustained support for America’s libraries; academic, special, school, and public.

One Missouri library recently made the news. Funding is limited in Boonville, Missouri, where the public library is too small and becoming too old to support its local community.

The Declaration to the Right to Libraries is one way to help promote your local and school libraries. You can sign the declaration online, or you can check with your local library to find out whether there will be a signing ceremony in your town.

We want to hear from you:

When’s the last time you or your child used your library?

Do you and your children still use the library for school work, or do you rely mostly on the Internet?
