A central Arkansas library director was fired after she refused a court resolution to relocate LGBT propaganda and content critics called “pornographic” from children’s sections to age-appropriate areas in the country’s public libraries.
Members of the Saline County Republican Women group were among those pushing for the relocation of “X-rated” material before the court passed a resolution to remove this material from the children’s section.
Executive director of county libraries, Hector, publicly refused to follow the court’s resolution, suggesting so would be “the same thing as banning books,” and that it was a way to “erase people of color and marginalize LGBTQ+ people.”
The women’s group shared images of one of the books the pushed to be removed which depicted various sex positions; promoted gender ideology and LGBT neologisms; had a chapter on masturbation and other kid-unfriendly material.
After weeks the court decided that Hector’s services were no longer needed.
“What they did is terrible for this county. … It’s none of their business what books people read and since they challenged three of them, one of them was about race and two of them were about LGBTQ,” the librarian told KATV.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas released a statement to the Arkansas Times saying, “These Saline county officials, who have proved themselves determined to ban books and target their librarian in order to do it, are likely to get an expensive education in the law they could have obtained for free by listening to their librarian and people in the community.”
