CA Archives and Library accessibility

By Gail K. Lightfoot

Candidate for Secretary of State; Libertarian Party

This information is provided by the candidate
Strenghten our libraries
California needs a vastly strengthened library system able to directly access the State Archives.

Public support is needed to rebuild our library system so that local libraries provide the research materials needed by an informed electorate.

Unless and until we recognise the need for maintaining the classic great works and historical books, we will continue to see our libraries stocking only the most frequently requested books rather than what reflects the history and culture that made CA a great state in a great nation.

Populartiy is not the most important factor in stocking our library shelves with books, videos or other media. We must remember this in order to share the past with the future.
