Dear Colleagues,****
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 to sign
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. ****

** **

Thank you,****

Marci Merola****
