Daily Thoughts 57: Policy of Inclusion

Author's selfie Still not feeling 100% today. It’s been a busy week! This next week will be even busier. I’ve enjoyed the initial introductions and discussions in my courses. It looks like it’s going to be an interesting semester. I still have one more class that hasn’t started yet, it begins on Monday.

Policy of Inclusion

Librarians serve everyone. Everyone may come into libraries and be welcome. Librarians don’t share what people borrow, or personal information provided to the library. The American Library Association’s Bill of Rights, Freedom to Read, Freedom to View statements, and other publications detail these fundamental to democracy rights.

Don’t believe for a second that your freedoms won’t come under attack. They will. Whether stifling scientific voices,¬†eliminating support for humanities and art, or denying innocent people from entering this country, freedoms long enjoyed¬†are coming under attack.
