I see no safe way to reopen libraries until vaccination is widespread. We work with vulnerable populations and often need to be in close proximity to give assistance. Libraries should not reopen until it is safe.

This is common sense. I'm tired of administration making decisions that directly endanger those under them.

I work in a public library and we have been open to the public fo a month now. Thankfully my branch isn’t busy and we don’t have as many cases here as in other parts of the US, but I know that it could get worse here and we could close again.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Libraries are the centers of their community. And the Librarians & Library workers are the integral working part of their library. Without the people you have no library! Human lives are more important than books and a building.

I'm signing because I'm a Librarian who wants to see my fellow library workers safe and protected.

I want communities to stay safe. We are really seeing the ways in which libraries are a band aid solution to society's failures. You can put a band aid on a pandemic.

Libraries are community leaders and should set an example for others by protecting staff while still providing services. Without library staff a library is just a warehouse for books. Keeping staff safe keeps communities safe. #ProtectLibraryWorkers
