A Michigan community voted to defund a library due to LGBTQ books. Thoughts?

Upset over LGBTQ books, a Michigan town defunds its library in tax vote

Voters in Jamestown Township, a politically conservative community in Ottawa County, rejected renewal Tuesday of a millage that would support the Patmos Library. That vote guts the library’s operating budget in 2023 — 84 percent of the library’s $245,000 budget comes from property taxes collected through a millage.

Without a millage, the library is likely to run out of money sometime late next year, said Larry Walton, library board president.

Most people who said they voted to defund the library Tuesday, said they didn’t believe it would close.
