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!

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

·         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.
