Keep ImagineIF Collections Open to Everyone
The ImagineIF Library Board is considering a new policy that would "avoid materials" that talk about sex or are obscene - without defining what that means. This change would limit access to what people can read and let a small group's moral agenda determine what is appropriate for everyone else.
The ImagineIF Foundation has issued a statement of concerns about the proposed changes saying it could a) bring successful and expensive censorship lawsuits to our library system, b) allow broad overreach in determining the re-shelving of books, while c) removing professional sources as needed for review of materials.
Why is this important?
Please add your name to this petition to the ImagineIF Library Board of Trustees, asking that they reject this unnecessary, unwise, and harmful collection policy.
