This morning, Carl Harvey (president of the American Association of School Libraries) posted a new White House petition about requesting funding and recognition for school libraries in the re-authorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. For it to become searchable we have 24 hours to get 150 signatures. It is easy to sign the petition. You will need to create an account (if you don’t already have one) to be able to sign the petition. If you’re having problems with the site, sign in using Explorer.
The URL for the petition is:
Once the petition crosses the 150 mark and it is searchable, efforts will double to get the additional signatures. I hope you will take a few minutes right now to go to the website and sign the petition so we can quickly cross that 150 threshold and begin building toward the thousands still needed.
Thanks for supporting school libraries!
