See You at the Library 2024

What Is See You at the Library?

See You at the Library is a national day where thousands of families come together at public libraries to host wholesome story hours that celebrate a return to American, Constitutional, and Biblical values. Families gather with their community to read wholesome children’s books, sing the national anthem, and pray! The goal of this movement is to secure the hearts and minds of the next generation.

How It Started

Last year, Kirk Cameron was denied by over 50 libraries to read his BRAVE book, As You Grow, on the Fruit of the Spirit. Kirk wrote letters to some of the libraries expressing his concern for their violation of the First Amendment. The libraries conceded, and he was allowed to read his book.

As Kirk Cameron hosted story hours reading his book, many libraries and protesters attempted to thwart him. Even the director of the American Library Association gave libraries tips on how to shut down these pro-God, pro-America book readings. 

From these challenges, the See You at the Library was born! Kirk and communities of families around the nation hosted wholesome story hours on See You At the Library Day. This year we’re doing it again on August 24th! This is a simple way to bring HUGE change to our nation. Are you ready to join the movement?

How Can You Make a Difference?

This year, we are calling on patriots across the country to join the movement and go to their local library to host their own Story Hour. This is about more than just reading children’s books… It's about shaping the future of our nation by instilling traditional values and a love for America in the next generation. With your help, we can leave a legacy by fostering a sense of faith, hope, and patriotism in our country again.
