Help Students Use the Public Libraries during Finals Week

This petition made change with 534 supporters!


The City of Dearborn announced that all people under the age of 18 cannot enter the three public libraries during the weeks leading up to Finals (January 16 - January 26) without an adult. This guideline prevents hard working students from getting quiet study time and checking out library books. It is a disruption to the learning process of students. While we understand that some children may misbehave, we cannot let the larger majority of students suffer from learning at the hands of those small bunch that are not yet mature. If a person is eligible to drive on public roads without an adult at the age of 16, then it is reasonable to say they can and should be trusted to enter a public library. This petition is important to me because I love to read and have easy access to books. I also need a quiet space to study because otherwise I cannot focus and get work done which leads to a poor grade on an important exam. Please help keep our libraries available to students who cannot get their parents to come watch them for three hours while they study or browse books.  Thank you.
