A West Michigan library board has voted to put a millage back on the November ballot after voters turned it down over LGBTQ books.
The Patmos Library Board of Trustees voted unanimously during its Monday meeting.
On Aug. 2, voters rejected the millage for the Jamestown Township library, putting it in danger of closing.
Some speakers during Monday night’s meeting said they voted against the millage because the library’s availability of the LGBTQ books goes too far, despite staff confirming that those only account for .13% of their catalog. Larry Walton, the library’s Board of Trustee’s president, previously told News 8 only 90 titles are related to LGBTQ issues out of 67,000.
