Push Back Against Book Bans Paris Bo.Co. Public Library
Protect Access To All Books For All People.
The library is under attack by those who would limit access to differing ideas. Intellectual freedom must be protected and can be if the citizens trust Library Board Members and the Library Staff to utilize existing policies that protect the rights of individuals to access information without undue restriction.
Parents have every right to choose what their children may read. Parents Do Not have the right to dictate what OTHER parents’ children may read. The Paris Bourbon County Library is funded by the taxpayers, not a church or political party, and can therefore not be used to advance a religious or political agenda.
We, the undersigned residents of Bourbon County, petition the Paris Bourbon County Library Board Members to uphold the principles of intellectual freedom, diversity, and access to information within our community. We firmly believe in maintaining an environment where all books and resources remain freely accessible to all.
We urge the Paris Library Board Members and Staff to affirm its commitment to intellectual freedom by upholding the library’s existing policies that protect the rights of individuals to access information without censorship or undue restriction.
Thank you for your support in preserving education and intellectual freedom in our community. Together, we can ensure future generations have access to a diverse range of ideas and perspectives.
Why is this important?
Lets protect our right to read and learn freely.
Our Paris Bourbon County Library Puts Unity In Our Community.
