Support City of Burbank library staff!

Burbank Public Library’s administrators are attempting to eliminate the minimum requirement for Full-Time Librarians, Senior Librarians, and Part-Time Librarians to hold a degree in library science. Despite appeals from staff, our administrators remain firm in their pursuit of these harmful changes.

Letting this happen in Burbank could set a dangerous precedent, leading to an erosion of standards in libraries across Los Angeles and the country. At a time when public libraries face legislative efforts to defund them and restrict intellectual freedom, it is crucial that we stand together in protecting library workers and upholding professional standards and training.

We urge you to show your support for Burbank librarians and library workers nationwide by signing this petition. Your signature indicates your solidarity and strong endorsement of the value and professional status of librarians.
