I am replying to the Messenger-Inquirer article about the library spending $35,000 to review books. If the director had checked these books before they hit the shelves maybe this wouldn’t have happened. The money was wasted and the director is responsible. Back in the olden days we said “the buck stops here.”
Taxing authority has been taken back from the library board and the board appointments have been changed back to the Judge-Executive. Why? Just quit putting books with social agendas or that violate community standards out. If you can’t read it out loud, print pictures or words in the newspaper, or if you can’t show pictures on the TV station, there is a good chance it violates community standards.
