Declaration for the Right to Libraries Signing Event

Barbara Stripling, the current president of the American Library Association has made the cornerstone of her presidency increasing public understanding of the value of libraries. As part of her initiative, she developed the Declaration for the Right to Libraries.

Dr. Stripling has invited all ALA members, ALA Chapters, library advocates and others to join forces in community-based signature campaigns.

Signed petitions will be forwarded to the U.S. Congress by library supporters during National Library Legislative Day activities on May 5 and 6, 2014.

At the University at Albany, the Student Chapter of the ALA will be having two signing events for the Declaration for the Right to Libraries:

Uptown in the University Campus Center on November 19th from 10am to 5pm.
Downtown in Husted Hall on November 20th from 2pm to 4:30pm.

We would love for you to join this endeavor – please feel free to drop by to support this worthwhile event.
