Stand for Children and Mi Voz Cuenta Endorses Libraries for All

We are parents, grandparents, teachers, and community members who advocate for education. 

We believe all students have a right to succeed.

Our high school graduation rates are unacceptable. Many children are entering school already behind. Public libraries and their special literacy programs help those children in particular. Libraries often provide their only early access to books and reading.

Libraries level the playing field for all students, especially those with no computer at home.  Jackson County library computers are in constant use by students, children, homeschoolers, college students and adults all year long. Our librarians, with their expert research skills, are invaluable to students entering secondary education. 

The creation of a Special Library District will guarantee sustainable funding for all libraries in Jackson County. A separately elected volunteer Board of Directors will ensure careful oversight of these dedicated funds to maintain and enhance library operations throughout the County.

End the political football that library funding has become under the county’s general fund by voting yes for libraries.

Join Stand for Children members throughout Jackson County and Mi Voz Cuenta in supporting Libraries for All.
