The Campbell County Commission will no longer be taking public comment relating to the Campbell County Public Library.

For the last three months, commissioners have listened to hours of public comment at their meetings from residents about the library, in particular with the teen and children’s sections containing books that deal with sex and LGBTQ+ issues.

Sounds like censorship! The commissioners are elected to handle issues within the county, this is an issue within the county, handle it!

It does not take 100 days to review a book! 10 days, yes, 100 NO! Multiply that by 40, neither the library nor the commissioners are doing their jobs! Sweep it under the rug,


The Jesus team spent the first two months whining in the commissioner meetings rather than fill out the forms to have the books reviewed. So it has not taken 100 days to review the books. I commend commissioner Maul for putting an end to the circus. Everyone has had their say time to let the library do the reviews. Unfortunately the zealots won't be happy until the only books left in the teen section are My Friend Flicka and Nancy Drew mysteries.
