We've signed the declaration. Have you? ilovelibraries.org/declarationIn partnership with the American Library Association, we will host a Declaration for the Right to Libraries signing event, to create public awareness and understanding of the value of Hartford’s public and school libraries.

The Declaration for the Right to Libraries is the cornerstone document of ALA President Barbara Stripling’s presidential initiative, Libraries Change Lives, which is designed to build the public will and sustained support for America’s right to libraries of all types.

The signing event is intended to serve as a launching point for continued community engagement to increase public and media awareness about the critical role of libraries, to inspire ongoing conversations about the role of the library in the community, to cultivate a network of community allies and advocates for the library, and to position the library as a trusted convener to help in the response to community issues.

The event will take place on Friday, November 15, at 10:00 am at the Hartford Public Library, 500 Main Street, Hartford. Join us, and use #right2libs on Twitter!
