Please Sign School Library Petition Before Feb. 4 Deadline

Time is running out to sign the White House petition asking for the inclusion of school libraries in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Indiana school librarian Carl Harvey posted the petition on January 5, 2012. To date, the petition has almost 15, 600 signatures. To qualify for an official response from the White House, 9,400 more signatures are needed by February 4, 2012. A big thank you to all the library supporters who have signed on thus far!

    Mary, I’m sorry to hear the site hasn’t been working for you. I only ask that you be persistent and take a look at the power point slides if you haven’t already. They show what you should be seeing when the site is working properly.

    We need libraries in school with librarians to run them.
