Concerned community members who support the library.
Oppose Censorship at Cape Girardeau Public Library
Please sign this petition to support The Cape Girardeau Public Library Board of Trustees as they stand against censorship.
Why is this important?
A well-organized vocal group of people want to remove books that they have deemed inappropriate. The library has reviewed these books and have found them compliant with state and federal law. Nonetheless, the group has called the police on the library and purchased large billboard ads. In addition, they are threatening costly litigation, picketing of the library, petitioning the Missouri attorney general and pursuing additional criminal complaints as well as taking legal actions against library administrators and board members.
