Subject: [alacoun] Urgent Request: White House Petition on School Libraries!
To: "Board, ALA Executive" <alaboard at ala.org>, ALA Council <alacoun at ala.org>
From Marci Merola on behalf of the School Library Task Force:
Carl Harvey, 2011-2012 AASL president, has initiated a White House petition on school libraries, which specifically petitions the Obama administration to “ensure that every child in America has access to an effective school library program.” 25,000 signatures are required in order for this petition to be viewed by White House staff, no later than February 4, 2012.
Please take a few seconds to sign this petition, spread the word to your member groups, ask your colleagues and library supporters in your circles tosign on, and spread the word via Facebook, Twitter and other channels!
The url is:http://wh.gov/Wgd .
A few things of note:
* We’ve heard that the petition software is temperamental. If you cannot sign in on your first attempt, please log out and log back in. Or, try a different web browser, or as a last resort, try a different computer.
* This petition should not be confused with a petition begun in 2011.
* White House petitions must be authored by individuals, not any association. Therefore, Carl has introduced this petition as an individual, not as a representative of AASL or ALA.
