At Jeffco Library, “free speech” is part of our DNA. With the election just a few short weeks away, we remind you of the important role libraries have always played in the democratic process. Libraries are perhaps one of the last bastions of free speech. Stop by your favorite library location this time of the year and you’ll see a table chock-full with information about everything from candidates to ballot measures. Pick up a pamphlet. Leaf through a leaflet. Take the Citizen’s Guide compiled by the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County. The bottom line is, we encourage you to learn more about the election so you can make an informed decision.
The sign on our election information table includes the following excerpt:
Opinions expressed in the literature on this table do not represent the views of, and are not endorsed by, Jefferson County Public Library.
That said, we certainly DO endorse expressing opinions; and, most importantly, voting!
