A Texas County May Lose Its Library

A judge had ordered its staff to return banned books to its shelves

A rural Texas county that was ordered by a federal judge to return banned books to its public library shelves is now considering shutting down its libraries entirely.

A meeting of the Commissioners Court of Llano County on Thursday will include discussion of whether to "continue or cease operations of the current physical Llano County library system pending further guidance from the Federal Courts," according to the meeting agenda.

The meeting comes after federal Judge Robert Pitman on March 30 ordered the Llano County Library System – which includes three branches – to return 12 children’s books to its shelves that had been removed, many because of their LGBTQ and racial content.
