LLANO, Texas — A small-town Texas library system threatened with extinction was spared Thursday after the Llano County commissioners said they would abide by a federal judge’s order to restore the books they banned rather than shut the system down.
“Our library system was started over a 100 years ago by a group of Llano County women who used to meet by our river to read books,” Little added. “That was the humble start of our library system. And if they were to shut it down, it would absolutely be the end of a key piece of our county’s history.”
When the commissioners scheduled the special meeting, the first item on the agenda was whether to “continue or cease operations” at the library.Texas county will keep library system open and comply with judge’s order to put banned books back in circulation
Historically, those who close libraries never end up on the ‘right’ side of history.
