Stop censorship in our County library system!

There is no room for censorship in a public library system. 
Despite this commonly held belief, library staff themselves are being censored here in Fairfax County. Staff have traditionally been encouraged to share any and all news about our library system with each other on the "FCPL In The News" site. Recently library administration has censored stories and comments that may seem negative toward the current administration. This is wrong and fundamentally against our basic beliefs in regard to freedom of thought and opinion.

Please sign our petition HERE (PETITION LINK) and join us for the Invest in Fairfax Rally on April 8th to tell Fairfax County to stop censoring librarians.You can RSVP for the budget hearing here (BUDGET HEARING APRIL 8TH)
