Welcome Messagebutterfly

from library director

PGPL is a welcoming community space. In light of increased book challenges around the country,
I would like to state that PGPL follows the American Library Association Bill of Rights. 
 

Restricted Access to Library Materials: An Interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights (2014) 

Libraries are a traditional forum for the open exchange of information. Attempts to restrict access to library materials violate the basic tenets of the Library Bill of Rights. 
 
We affirm the rights of individuals to form their own opinions about resources they choose to read, view, listen to, or otherwise access. The presence of books and other resources in a library does not indicate endorsement of their contents by the library. 
 
Thank you for supporting freedom of speech and the library, 

From,
Diana Godwin
