  • STUDENTS in Support of Libraries
    Reading opens doors for students to find someone like themselves by allowing them to read views from around the world. In Catawba County, the library is a prime spot to access books as many students don't have the means to buy books. Student voices need to be heard as WE are the ones affected.

  • Support the right to read in Catawba
    Books are being removed from Catawba county school libraries, infringing on parent rights. These bans have consumed tax payer money, teacher's time, and school board time that could have been spent on educating our children. Tell the school board you want these books kept on the shelves. Sign and share this petition.

  • Stop Outsiders from Deciding What Your Child Reads in Lubbock
    Outside groups are coming into our community and pressuring school boards to issue a blanket removal of hundreds of books, including classics and award winning books that many of us grew up reading. And, they want the books removed by government action without consulting parents, librarians, or educators. Tell your school board that you are against thoughtless, extreme, government-imposed censorship and for real parental choice and liberty. Sign and share this petition today!

  • Stop Book Bans in Utah
    According to a recent Salt Lake Tribune article (https://www.sltrib.com/news/education/2023/10/23/we-looked-banned-books-utahs), Utah schools have banned hundreds of books in the last year. But not just any books... The top 5 banned authors are women writers who write about coming of age experiences for young adults, particularly girls. Many of these books cover topics such as sexual abuse or having a parent who is addicted to drugs. While these are difficult topics, we know that many teens experience these things, and these books give kids the language and concepts they can use to to draw safe boundaries, and to talk to trusted adults. In short, these books help keep kids safe, and help them know that they are not alone, and that there is hope. Let's tell the politicians that we trust professional librarians and teachers, who are licensed and certified by the state, to choose materials that support the education, development, and mental health of ALL students in accordance with state standards, local policy, and laws. Sign the petition and stand with the majority of Utahns who oppose harmful book bans.

  • Stop censorship at the Community Library Network!
    Library Trustees are imposing their beliefs on library patrons by censoring books available to young patrons. They are updating the Materials Selection Policy by updating selection of books as a whole or "IN PART." Our Sheriff Norris has also weighed in. Parents should be the ones to determine what books are appropriate for their child, not the Board of Trustees. Having access to a wide array of viewpoints and information is a hallmark of intellectual freedom. Sign today! Let's show the library trustees we are against censorship in any form.

  • Oppose Censorship in Harford County
    Members of the Harford County Council and Board of Education are overstepping their positions and improperly imposing their personal beliefs into our school libraries. Not only is this censorship but their actions are creating a hostile environment for HCPS students and staff. It is not the job of HCPS nor the County Council to restrict resources and books to students. Having access to a wide variety of books, resources and information is an individual freedom and right of the student and parent. Sign today! Lets show the BoE and the County Council that Harford Countians are against banning any books. We want a safe and inclusive learning environment for ALL of our students.

  • Support Magnolia Middle School student's Right to Read - Save the Manga Library
    I firmly believe that every child deserves access to diverse forms of literature that cater to their interests. Manga books provide a unique medium through which students can explore complex narratives while improving reading comprehension skills. Anime films offer visual storytelling techniques that captivate young minds while promoting literacy and cultural exploration.

    Student rights do not end at the school house door. The right to read is a fundamental constitutional right. Every book that is banned, removed or labeled erodes that right.

  • Support the Paris-Bourbon County Public Library
    Confrontational mega-challenge campaigns divert library professionals divert library professionals and administration from the work of creating a vibrant, fresh collection. These campaigns are designed to use financial and human resources in order to call for defunding public libraries. Often the ultimate goal of these campaigns is to remove a community's public library completely. Censorship campaigns destroy the First Amendment rights of readers, create an anxious and uncertain atmosphere for the vast majority of library users, and ultimately damage communities.
