Campbell County Public Library

The Campbell County Public Library board added four words to the library’s mission statement.

At its monthly meeting Monday afternoon, the library board voted 3-2 to change the mission statement to include the phrase “while reflecting community standards.”

Does this mean that since my personal standards are completely opposite of several board members that I won't be able to ask the library to get books that I WANT TO READ? For instance, I recently asked the library to get a book called Weapons of Mass Delusion: How the Republican Party Lost its Mind by Robert Draper. It was a fascinating read, I read it in a few days and highly recommend it.
