The debate over Campbell County Public Library has gone from overblown nonsensical to scary in just a few days.

A small number of protesters have been hazing the library, its board and the county commission since the summer. Acting like Chicken Little, they warned time and time again that the sky was falling because of library displays and events. Then they decided that the devil was inside the library itself and started targeting its books in the teen and children’s sections that they fear will turn youth into some sort of sex-crazed zombies.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!




Are there not rules or laws that part members of a board meeting in private, outside of the view of the public, to discuss business?


Thanks Commissioners Shelstad and Faber for standing firm on morals and for trying to protect our youth from sexualization at such a young age. The fact that people actually support children reading these types of books shows how desensitized adults have become. We are doing our youth a huge disservice by promoting these kinds of books.
