What to say
The City Council appoints three of the seven board members to the Library Board of Trustees. Every other year they appoint a fourth member. Tell your city councilor that from now on you only want library board appointees who will prevent and remove indecent, obscene, and pornographic material marketed to minors.
The Council also approves a budget every year to help fund the library. The 2022 budget was $350,000. Tell your city councilor that you do not want your tax dollars funding indecent, obscene, and pornographic material marketed to minors.
The Council can pursue adopting a resolution requiring that any book that violates the health, safety, and morals of our community must be removed from the public library. All books containing indecency, obscenity, and pornography threaten the mental health of our children and violate the moral standards of our community.
